President Obama's announcement that the U.S. will start talks on normalizing relations with Cuba includes plans to allow more exports to that country.  Some say that could offer new opportunities for Illinois farmers and businesses.

One of those people is William Delaney. He chairs the International Business Council for the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, and reacted positively to the possibility of greater exports to Cuba being allowed.

"The impact would be direct, immediate and hugely beneficial for the state of Illinois."

The governor's overhaul proposal receives an endorsement from the Illinois Chamber of Commerce.
