Dear Friends & Neighbors–
This week was the deadline to file legislation for the Spring Session. Many proposals are up for consideration. One of the proposals that will be discussed from that last session is Senate Bill 1966 that would impose more fees and fingerprinting on law-abiding gun owners in Illinois. I am still opposed to that but am a co-sponsor of an alternative bill HB 3839. (Learn more HERE)
The next Traveling office Hours will be in Fairfield and Olney On Feb. 18th. (Times HERE)
This week is “Grain Bin Safety Week” to help draw attention to the need to remember the hard work and challenges involved in agriculture. Learn more about this topic and the opportunities for broadband expansion in rural areas at our Caucus Blog HERE.
The next Session date is Tuesday, February 18th. Remember you can register your support or opposition to bills by filing “Witness Slips” online. Here is how.
