CHICAGO – With the Illinois General Assembly gearing up to start the Spring Legislative Session in January, state Rep. Theresa Mah, D-Chicago, is encouraging constituents to present legislative ideas that they would like to see implemented as laws in the State of Illinois.

“As state Representative, I am committed to speaking thoroughly for my neighbors who call our community home,” said Mah. “Government is here to serve the people, so it is only right that we do what we can to improve everybody’s quality of life.”

In the previous session, Rep. Mah presented legislation on a various range of topics, including bills that became laws that hold government agencies accountable, increase efficiency and clarity, protect cultural and religious freedoms and more.

“In the lawmaking process, there has to be compromise and sometimes everybody doesn’t get everything they desire, but I believe it is important that people have their voices heard to take the important steps toward common goals,” said Mah. “If we come together as a community there are incredible things that can be accomplished.”

Residents are encouraged to call Rep. Mah’s district office to discuss legislative ideas for the upcoming legislative session at 872-281-5775.

Mah represents the 2nd District, which includes the Chicago neighborhoods of McKinley Park, Pilsen, Chinatown, Bridgeport, Brighton Park and Back of the Yards. For more information please contact Rep. Mah’s district office at 872-281-5775 or
