Thank you for visiting my legislative website. It is my honor to serve the citizens of the 2nd Legislative District in the Illinois General Assembly. On this website, you can learn a little bit about me, my record in the General Assembly, and the services I can provide you.
Right now, my top priorities are ensuring the best education for our students, providing accessible, curb the rate of prescription drug abuse throughout the state and ensure affordable mental health care options to the people of Illinois.
Another area I will continue to focus on is the issue of prescription drug abuse in Illinois. Prescription drug abuse costs lives, increases crime, and accelerates costs associated with drug treatment. In addition, Illinois was the first state to hold hearings on this topic following a report released by the Federal Government entitled "Epidemic: Responding to America’s Prescription Drug Abuse Crisis".
I will also continue to fight for those living with mental health issues in our State. I passed a law last year to require all health insurance policies sold in Illinois to services without gouging consumers. This law covers the treatment of mental, emotional, and substance abuse treatment without having to pay for it out of pocket.
I always welcome feedback from my constituents, so if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact me. Check the Constituent Services section of my website to learn about upcoming events.
