HB 2505 Signed Into Law



"Before Gov. Pritzker signed this bill into law, the definition of 'local' food excluded many of our favorite truly local products, like fruit jams grown, made and packaged right here in Illinois, said Rep. Maurice West (D-Rockford). "We owed it to our constituents to fix that problem, and I thank the governor for signing this bill into law."



Finally had the opportunity to make it to Spingfield and was able to pick up an original resolution for the League of Women Voters.  I was so proud to introduce a resolution naming June 10th as a day to celebrate Women's Right to Vote.



My Chief of Staff attended the Keith Creek Neighborhood Association meeting on August 15th in order to hear about the positive developments and issues facing the community.
