CHICAGO – Reflecting her strong track record of working with members on both sides of the aisle to get things done, state Rep. Fran Hurley has been re-appointed as whip of the House Democrats’ “Mod Caucus.”

“The Mod Caucus is a diverse group of members from around the state who understand it’s unhelpful to play partisan games or push policy beyond what most residents would be comfortable with,” Hurley said. “Our focus should be on finding common ground and delivering real results on the issues working families care about.”

In an era of extreme partisanship, Hurley has encouraged a more moderate approach to public safety, taxes and other issues. The Moderate Caucus, better known as the “Mod Caucus,” was developed to unify like-minded representatives to advocate for a balanced approach toward building a stronger economy, improving education, increasing access to health care, and strengthening support for first responders and union workers.

“This is a caucus made up of individuals who will listen to everyone and work to produce actual results,” Hurley said. “There will be a number of challenges we face in the coming year that will require a responsible, balanced approach. It’s important that moderates stand together as a strong voice.”

The Mod Caucus currently has 20 members, with more expected to join from this year’s incoming class of newly-elected representatives. An updated roster can be viewed at under the Moderate Caucus tab.
