Meeting with local government officials

We are trying to get in as many advisory committee meetings before the House is in session every week.

A few days ago we met with local government officials including Village Presidents, Mayors, Administrators, and County Board Chairmen. We discussed different pieces of legislation such as House Bill 1634, which deals with emissions on diesels; House Bill 3908, the Firefighter Paid Family Leave Act; House Bill 4422 having to do with local control of solar and wind projects; House Bill 4423, the Back the Badge bill; as well as other issues like police staffing, FOIA requests, economic development and upcoming projects.

It was a full agenda! Lots of great conversations and I was given several bills to look into further. I am very thankful that these folks gave up their time to come!
