SPRINGFIELD - The Fall Legislative Session, also known as veto session, for the Illinois General Assembly began this week, and not much was accomplished by the legislature on any of the major issues facing us. We return for the Fall Legislative Session on November 5, 2013.
I remain hopeful that we will resolve some, if not all of the major issues (Pension reform, Marriage equality, Tax breaks for big corporations, and Guns) when we return in November. Please look for my next Legislative Report on Friday, November 8, 2013.
You can also receive updates from me via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also visit the App Store and download the State Rep. Chris Welch app on iTunes. If you would like to receive text message updates, please text Welch to 55469 to be added my contact list.
Until Next Time,
Emanuel "Chris" Welch
State Representative, 7th District
