STATEMENT FROM REP. FRAN HURLEY
SEPTEMBER 6, 2017
The General Assembly recently voted on education funding reform. I have always been clear that I am willing to meet my colleagues on the other side of the aisle half way in order to achieve reforms that benefit my constituents and those in the state of Illinois.
I voted for bipartisan compromise reform that puts us closer than ever to fixing Illinois' broken school funding formula. When it became clear that Senate Bill 1 would not pass the House in its original form because there were not enough votes to override the Governor's veto, I took the tough vote and supported SB 1947 in order to achieve much needed reform.
Senate Bill 1947 provides the same promise of permanent funding for our local schools that I supported, and that was included in Senate Bill 1, with some additional items in order to come to a bi-partisan compromise. While I don't agree with 100 percent of what is in the final bill, this compromise still delivers 100 percent of what our local schools need now.
I am also supporting House Bill 4083 which would repeal the Cook County Beverage Tax and prevent counties throughout Illinois from passing similar measures in the future.
If you have questions, please contact my constituent service office at 773-445-8128.
State Representative 35th District
Legislation for Increased Education on Human Trafficking
Passed - House Bill 1677
The Governor signed my bill, HB 1677, and it became Public Act 100-0357. The law amends the IL Vehicle Code and provides that the IL Secretary of State shall include information on the human trafficking problem in the state in its commercial drivers license curriculum and study guide.
Legislation for Continuing Property Fraud Relief
Passed - House Bill 3050
I sponsored House Bill 3050 which was signed into law by the Governor and became Public Act 100-0276. The Act allows for the continuation of the Property Fraud "Review and Refer" program that allows the Recorder of Deeds, through the State's Attorney, to represent victims of property fraud and fraudulent transfers in Cook County. Through this free representation, fraudulent recordings can be invalidated by a County Administrative Law Judge. This program has helped thousands of residents who have fallen victim to property fraud and has received national attention.
