CHICAGO – As a new General Assembly begins, state Rep. Lamont Robinson, Jr., D-Chicago, is asking residents of his district to submit ideas for new laws.
“My job as a state representative is to create and advocate for legislation that addresses the needs and concerns of my constituents,” Robinson said. “The best way to do that is to involve the members of our community in the legislative process and to include their ideas in new legislation.”
Robinson is inviting local residents to send in ideas for new laws that they believe will benefit their community. Robinson plans to personally review each submission and will consider introducing them as legislation. Residents should send ideas to District5Rep@LamontJRobinson.com before Thursday, Jan. 24.
“Our state and our community face serious challenges, and we need to work together to help solve them,” Robinson said. “I’m looking forward to hearing from our community and incorporating new and creative ideas into my legislative agenda.”
