Other Reports

Newsletter, Illinois Maternal and Child Health Care Coalition, 428 W. Jefferson, Springfield 62702.

The first issue of this quarterly publication is dated June 1988.

A Program to Increase Film Production Activity in Illinois, available from Illinois Film Office, State of Illinois Center, Suite 3-400, 100 W. Randolph St., Chicago 60601 (June 1987).

This study, which was done for the Illinois Film Office by Arthur D. Little, concludes that Illinois had been highly successful in attracting film production and that the office is one of the best in the nation at providing the basic services needed by film producers. The study focuses on the methods used by others to attract film production, how this state can accommodate an increase in production and on developing a program to attract additional production.
