House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch is pleased to welcome the WNBA Champion Chicago Sky basketball team to the House of Representatives on Tuesday October, 26.

Members of the team in attendance will be recognized on the House floor at the commencement of session at noon. Face coverings must be worn and House members will be asked to follow additional protocols to encourage social distancing and avoid crowding. In keeping with current practice to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the House gallery will remain closed to members of the public.

“This Chicago Sky championship win is historic and we are honored to celebrate their achievements here in the State Capitol,” said Speaker Welch. “Of course, I am incredibly proud of this team for their performance on the court, but I am even more inspired by the values they exemplify off the court. These women are the role models our communities deserve and they make our state exceptionally proud.”
