§ 10-5. Purpose. The Illinois economy depends heavily on the commercial for-profit live theater industry and the pre-Broadway and long-run shows that are presented in Illinois. As a result of intense competition from other prominent theater cities in the United States and abroad in attracting pre- Broadway and long-run shows, Illinois must move aggressively with new business development investment tools so that Illinois is more competitive in site location decision making for show producers. In an increasingly global economy, Illinois' long-term development will benefit from the rational, strategic use of State resources in support of pre-Broadway live theater and long-run show development and growth. It is the purpose of this Act to preserve and expand the existing work force used in live theater and enhance the marketing of the presentation of live theater in Illinois. It shall be the policy of this State to promote and encourage the training and hiring of Illinois residents who represent the diversity of the Illinois population through the creation and implementation of training, education, and recruitment programs organized in cooperation with Illinois colleges and universities, labor organizations, and the commercial for-profit live theater industry.
