AURORA, Ill. – State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Aurora, encourages residents to submit ideas for new laws for the upcoming 2019 legislative session.
“I want to offer residents the opportunity to share their ideas on laws that could improve our community,” Kifowit said. “Every year I develop a strong legislative agenda because of the input I receive from the community.”
Residents can submit their legislative ideas for review to Kifowit’s district office, located at 1677 Montgomery Rd., Ste. 116 in Aurora. Last year, multiple ideas submitted by Kifowit’s Youth Advisory Council became law. One example, House Bill 4226, calls for the Illinois Department of Public Health to develop, publish and distribute educational brochures that schools can pass out to children who may have sustained a concussion. Another, House Bill 5148, adds more instruction on sexual consent and discussions of sexual harassment and assault that occur in workplaces and colleges to Illinois schools’ sex education courses. HB 4100, which also became law, came from local nurses who submitted the idea for the Nurse Violence Prevention Bill, legislation to prevent violence against nurses and other healthcare workers.
“I greatly value residents’ ideas to improve our communities and work hard to ensure that the legislation I introduce and support addresses their concerns,” Kifowit said. “I look forward to working with residents to hopefully enact their ideas into law.”
