Illinois Republicans have a plan to attract and keep jobs in the state.  Pekin representative Mike Unes [[yoo-nes]] says the idea is to put people back to work and allow businesses to be more competitive with neighboring states.

Unes says part of their five step plan is to increase the estate tax exemption.

The plan is to re-enact the net operating loss deduction, re-enact the Illinois research and development tax credit, extend the life of the existing enterprise zones by up to 20 years, reduce administrative costs for setting up and incorporating a Limited Liability Corporation, and increasing the estate tax exemption from two to five million dollars.  Unes says the five step approach should get support from both sides of the aisle.
