SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – State Rep. Michelle Mussman, D-Schaumburg, is encouraging local residents to submit ideas for new laws or changes to current ones for the upcoming 2018 legislative session in January.
“Being as accessible as I can is very important to me, and I want people to be included in the discussions that create the laws that affect their daily lives,” Mussman said. “Directly involving constituents in the legislative process and seeking their input on how to make Illinois better for them and their families helps me develop my legislative agenda.”
Mussman is encouraging area residents to submit legislative ideas to her constituent service office for review and potential implementation. Residents whose ideas are introduced as legislation may have the opportunity to testify on them in a committee hearing. Mussman believes it is vital to seek community input from the people she represents in Springfield because they know what is best for them, their pocketbooks and families.
“No matter where I go or what I do, I often hear from people looking to become more involved and make an impact on their neighborhood, community and the state directly,” Mussman said. “This is one great way to do that. I welcome all ideas from my residents, and I look forward to the ideas that make it to my desk.”
