As you probably know, the legislature adjourned at the end of May under disappointing circumstances. I've written a summary of the session, in two parts: a broad-based update on some high-profile items that you can read about here, as well as this brief outline of some of the bills I was able to pass.
Representative Laura Fine and I will be holding a town hall Thursday evening to discuss what has been done so far and where we should go from here:
When: Thursday, June 6th, 7:00pm
Where: Glenview Police Station, 2500 E Lake in Glenview
Please call my office at 847-568-1250 or send me an email with any questions. I hope to see you Thursday evening!
