The first session
of the 99th General Assembly is near it's half way point, and bills are starting
to move through the assembly. Most notably, last week the General Assembly
passed legislation to address a serious budget shortfall in last year's budget
of fiscal 2015. Also, I am chief sponsoring a few bills in the House of
Representative, and those measures are moving through the assembly. One of my
top priorities is HB3695. This bill pushes to protect the pension security of
the hard working retired teachers of Chicago.
When I return to
Springfield we will continue to work on the fiscal year 2016 budget, and all of
the other very important legislative measures. As always, you can count
on me to be your 33rd District advocate for fair allocation of resources, and
It is my honor to be your
voice in Springfield. Thank you for allowing me to serve you.
