This morning there's a program in Rock Island designed to shed some light on the patient protection and affordable care act, more commonly known as Obamacare.
Obamacare is first and foremost about decreasing the number of uninsured Americans and the overall costs of healthcare.
So what does this mean for a small business?
The law states for most employers and employees by 2014, there'll be a new way for them to shop for less expensive health insurance, by choosing from a selection of competing providers.
The Greater Quad Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce said these laws can be difficult to understand so they've set up the program to make it easier.
"Everybody, all the business owners, should really take the opportunity to get as much information as possible from some of the best experts that we could put together," said Alvaro Macias of the Greater Quad Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
The program will be mainly focused on how this will affect businesses on the Illinois side, but there will be a lot of general information for any small business too.
Registration for the event starts at 7:30 this morning, for more information click on popular links.
