STATEMENT FROM REP. FRAN HURLEY
January 1, 2018
Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays! And I wish you a happy and healthy 2018.
Our spring legislative session is about to begin and I am looking forward to continuing my work in Springfield in 2018.
Protecting first responders has always been a priority of mine, and I am proud to be the chair of the House Police and First Responders Committee. I have been working on moving a bill through the legislature that I introduced in 2017, HB 3148, which would require local governments to post a notice on structurally damaged or unsafe buildings posing a potential risk to police or fire fighters responding to an emergency. Such buildings would be identified with a large, noticeable marking such as the red "X". By marking these buildings with a red X or something similar, first responders can act accordingly in an emergency to keep themselves and their colleagues safe.
The bill idea originated from a conversation I had with a constituent while walking door-to-door. I have discussed the bill in front of the House Construction Industry and Code Enforcement Committee, where testimony was heard from the Illinois Fire Fighters Association, City of Chicago, Illinois Fire Inspectors Association, and City of Chicago, Department of Buildings.
Currently, I am working details of the bill out with stakeholders. Passage of HB 3148 would provide an increase in safety for first responders throughout Illinois.
If you have questions, please contact my constituent service office at 773-445-8128.
