Frerichs for Illinois - Will you help?


Today, I need your help. I have been fighting for Illinois consumers since day 1 in office and I need your help to continue. 
With a stroke of a pen, Governor Rauner chose to side with life insurance companies instead of grieving widows and orphans. Governor Rauner vetoed House Bill 302, which is an initiative of my office to ensure people are put before corporate profits. 
House Bill 302 will require life insurance companies to search their files to identify policies that have not been paid to the rightful beneficiaries going back to the year 2000. Through audits, my office found over $550 million owed to Illinois residents that insurance companies had not paid.  
I am now calling on Illinois lawmakers to override the veto because paying death benefits should not be a partisan issue. It is a matter of right and wrong. 
Thank you for your support!
