ROCKFORD, Ill. – Last week, state Rep. Dave Vella, D-Rockford, marked his first 100 days in office serving the 68th District by highlighting some of his local and legislative achievements to date.

“As State Representative, it has been my honor to serve the people of the 68th District for the past 100 days,” said Vella. “Whether it’s here in the district connecting local residents with state services and hearing their concerns about important issues or in Springfield working on legislation and serving as their voice in state government, I spend each day working for my constituents.”

  • Legislation
    • House Bills sponsored: 17
    • House Bill co-sponsored: 49
    • House Bills passed: 4
    • House Committees: 5 standing committee assignments

“I am proud of the work we have accomplished in these first 100 days in office, especially in the midst of a pandemic when many local families and businesses are facing difficult challenges,” Vella said. “I look forward to building on the work that we have started and continuing to serve as a voice for my constituents here in the district and in Springfield.”
