Property Tax Relief - Senate Bill 851
I supported this bill which provides for a property tax freeze for all units of government in Cook, Will, Lake, McHenry, Kane, and DuPage Counties for two years. It also requires that homeowners must approve any increases in property taxes by referendum during that timespan. The House passed the bill with bipartisan support and SB 851 will now be considered by the Senate.
Sexual Harassment in Government - HJR 83
The Resolution urges members of the General Assembly to work to find solutions and ways to change the culture of sexual harassment in Springfield and throughout politics in Illinois.

STATEMENT FROM REP. FRAN HURLEY
December 1, 2017
The holidays are upon us again! I hope you are enjoying time with your family and friends.
Veto session concluded in mid-November and the General Assembly will resume again in January. As always, when I am not in Springfield during session, I am available in one of my local offices in Chicago and Orland Hills. Please feel free to contact me.
Women in Illinois and throughout the country are continuing to come forward to demand an end to sexual harassment and discrimination. Recently, I was appointed to serve on a newly created Task Force on Sexual Discrimination and Harassment which will explore new policies to combat harassment in the public and private sectors. I also supported a package of legislative measures in November to crackdown on sexual harassment in state government, ensure offenders are brought to justice, and that steps are taken to continue combating workplace discrimination.
In conjunction with a bi-partisan effort to to reduce the wage gap between men and women in Illinois, I voted yes twice on HB 2462, the Equal Pay Act. Unfortunately, the Senate did not override the governor's veto of HB 2462 and the bill failed. I am committed to continuing to support efforts to require employers to pay women the same pay as equally qualified men performing the same job.
Legislation to ban municipal governments from creating local "right to work" zones failed an override vote in the House. As a result, the governor's veto of Senate Bill 1905 stands. While the bill was defeated in November, I will continue to fight to ensure workers who want to collectively bargain a livable wage through their unions can do so.
If you have questions, please contact my constituent service office at 773-445-8128.
