Senate Bill 172 amends the Insurance Code to exempt insurers from having to provide customers with an annual privacy policy notice, so long as their privacy policies have not changed and comply with relevant law. The bill was sponsored by Senator Jim Stamas, R-Midland.

Senate Bill 306 provides a framework for residential real property to be treated as assessable property for the purposes of a principal shopping district (PSD), business improvement district (BID), or business improvement zone (BIZ). Residential property owners whose properties may be subject to assessment for PSD, BID, or BIZ purposes must be notified and have a voice in the assessment process. The bill was sponsored by Senator Peter MacGregor, R-Rockford.
