State Representative 35th District
With each passing day, I know that the budget impasse continues to affect the lives of people in our communities, and I find myself growing more and more frustrated. I remain open and accessible to members from both sides of the aisle who want to work together and end the pain caused by the stalemate this year. I, once again, urge Governor Rauner to abandon his non-budget items as a condition to passing a budget, and work with me to end the uncertainty that is harming businesses and residents alike.
While the budget negotiations continue, I'll also be working next week in Springfield to advance other important pieces of legislation. My proposal to add coursework for student drivers regarding how to handle interactions with police officers has been assigned to the Transportation Regulation: Vehicles and Safety Committee. I look forward to presenting this bill which I believe will protect the public and the police by helping drivers learn very early what they should expect, and what is appropriate, when interacting with the men and women who keep us safe. Additionally, I'll continue to push a measure on the floor that would remove a restrictive date for purchasing service credit for military veterans who are employees of Cook County. By removing the current date of 1993, this bill will grant our Iraq and Afghanistan veterans the ability to purchase service credit like other veterans who were members of the fund before 1993.
House Bill 6131 provides a driver education course, whether offered by a public school, a non-public school, or a driver training school, will include instruction concerning law enforcement procedures for traffic stops, including a demonstration of the proper actions to be taken during a traffic stop and appropriate interactions with law enforcement.
House Bill 6168 is currently in the Human Services Appropriations Committee. This bill allows Special Olympics to collect up to 2.5 millions dollars if they have raised that much in the Special Olympic Lottery Ticket.
HB 6130 would remove a restrictive date for purchasing service credit for military veterans who are employees of Cook County. By removing the date of 1993; HB 6130 grants Iraq and Afghanistan veterans the ability to purchase service credit like other veterans where members of the fund before 1993.
