This site also has links to commonly requested information about the state, so you can use my site as a quick way to link to other sources you need.

For the 102nd General Assembly, I serve as a Spokesperson for the Pensions Committee, and have been named as a member of the Agriculture, Energy and Public Utilities, Financial Institutions, Health Care Access and Availability, Judiciary, and Veterans Affairs committees. I also currently serve on the Legislative Ethics Commission, which works with the Legislative Inspector General in investigating allegations of misconduct by state lawmakers and staff.
Our state faces some major challenges. I will continue to push for a responsible approach, for long overdue reforms to a system that clearly does not work. Someone has to stand up for the hard-working taxpayers of Illinois.
On these and other issues, I would like to know what you think. Your opinions are important to me and will help me make sure your concerns are heard in the Capitol. I look forward to hearing from you.
State Senator, 45th District
