Rep. Carol Ammons shares which bills she’s supporting

Representative Carol Ammons recently shared an email detailing the work she’s doing in the Illinois General Assembly, including the bills she is supporting or co-sponsoring. Whether you agree with her stances or not, transparency is good, and so is staying informed about how your rep is voting. See her statement below and follow the link to see the rest of the newsletter.

Recently the budget and school funding have held most of our attention, as they should, but there is a lot more happening at the State Capital.

I believe that compromise is a necessary part of the lawmaking process. That is why I voted to pass SB6, a balanced, bipartisan budget plan that cuts nearly $3 billion in state bureaucracy, and invests our finite resources in critical services like Meals on Wheels, domestic violence shelters, breast cancer screenings and other services that middle-class families, the elderly and our most vulnerable rely on. I’m proud to say the General Assembly worked cooperatively to put people over politics and to end the state’s budget impasse.

It is my hope that this email will help you stay in touch with your government. As your representative, I believe in the importance of public service. If there’s anything my office can do to assist you, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Here for service,

Managing Editor
