BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. – State Rep. Jonathan Carroll, D-Buffalo Grove, is asking residents to submit their ideas for new laws for the upcoming 2019 legislative session starting in January.
“Part of fighting for our community in Springfield includes seeking community input on legislation the General Assembly should pass in 2019,” Carroll said. “I want residents directly involved in the legislative process to make sure that the laws passed next year reflect our values.”
Carroll is encouraging residents to submit legislative ideas to his constituent service office. In some cases, residents may have the opportunity to testify on them in a committee hearing. Carroll believes that receiving input is vital to representing his district well in Springfield.
“Everywhere I travel in the community, I hear from people with great ideas and insights into our community’s and state’s most pressing challenges,” Carroll continued. “Our legislative idea submission process serves as a great opportunity to turn ideas into action.”
