Illinois Governor JB Pritzker

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Illinois' governor is leading an entourage of top state officials on a weeklong trip to the United Kingdom to tout the state’s new clean-energy law and seek climate-friendly investment.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker's group departed Tuesday. Pritzker spokeswoman Emily Bittner says it will spend three days in London meeting with government and industry leaders to encourage expansion in Illinois’ “green-energy” economy. 

The group will continue on to the Scottish city of Glasgow on Friday for the global climate change summit. Bittner says Pritzker will tout the Clean Energy Jobs Act he signed into law in September.
