DES PLAINES, Ill. – State Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, is asking residents for their suggestions on on new legislative initiatives for early January of 2019.
“I have heard many great ideas from residents while going door-to-door and on the phones this year about ways we can work towards solutions on the issues facing our state,” Moylan said. “With the start of the new general assembly and new legislative session approaching, I strongly encourage anyone with legislative ideas to give me a call so that we can discuss new ways to move the state forward.”
Moylan wants to encourage residents who are frustrated with a problem to submit their ideas and make their voices heard. Illinois faces many challenges that will have to be dealt with during the next 2 years, and Moylan wants to give residents an opportunity to suggest solutions to problems ranging from local issues to the state’s biggest problems.
This outreach has resulted in successful legislation in the past. Last year, after Moylan received a lot of feedback from residents shortly after the deadly attack in Las Vegas, all calling for more common-sense gun safety reforms and protection against assault rifles, Moylan took action and introduced legislation to address their growing concerns. Another bill was introduced and subsequently passed regarding airplane noise at O’Hare Airport, and many of the final proposals in the bill came from residents living near the airport.
“The legislative process can seem confusing and difficult to understand, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from taking part in helping shape our state’s policies,” Moylan said. “Residents are often surprised by how a simple idea at the local level can turn into actual legislation. This is an interactive government that relies on the residents to provide their thoughts on how we can fix problems through the legislative process.”
Residents should submit their ideas by calling Moylan’s constituent service office at 847-635-6821 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
