First Responders Protection - HB 4390
Provides that a person commits an offense when he or she knowingly creates a dangerous condition and intentionally conceals the dangerous condition in a commercial property under his or her management or operational control, and the dangerous condition is found to be the primary cause of the death or serious bodily injury of a first responder in the course of his or her official duties.

Protecting Consumers - HB 4095
Provides that a consumer reporting agency may not impose a charge on a consumer for placing a freeze, removing a freeze, or temporarily lifting a freeze on their credit.

Bill Update


​​April 2, 2018

I have been busy in session in Springfield and in committee hearings reviewing and hearing testimony on substantive legislation that must move out of House committees by mid-April in order to be voted on by the end of session.  

The General Assembly is also preparing to enter budget negotiations and prioritize spending for the new fiscal year.  It has always been my goal to protect middle-class and struggling families in our communities.  I will continue to work in the coming months to ensure our state's budget protects homeowners, seniors, and individuals with disabilities.

Last month, the U.S. Postal Service unveiled and dedicated a new stamp to commemorate Illinois' Bicentennial.  The stamp art features an outline of the state map, with the yellows and blues symbolizing the dawning of a new day as the state joins the Union on Dec. 3, 1818.  The stars represent the first 20 states in the Union; the rising sun symbolizes the new state's place on the American flag as the 21st star.
