Welcome to my legislative website!

Dear Friend,

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my legislative website. I have proudly served the 41st State Senate District in Springfield since 1997, representing the people of Will, Cook and DuPage Counties.

I encourage you to check my website regularly for information on how I am working for you in Springfield. In an effort to keep this site informative and helpful, I frequently provide updates on important legislation and state issues pending in Springfield. This website is also a good resource to find information on local and state services, benefits and other opportunities available to Illinois residents.

In 2016, the 99th General Assembly will continue to tackle many difficult issues. One of my top priorities is eliminating Illinois’ massive budget deficit through reduced spending and through the job and business growth we need to boost our economy.

Please do not hesitate to contact my office with any questions, opinions or concerns—I love hearing from you and enjoy receiving feedback! Additionally, notarization services are now available in my district office. You can reach my Lemont office at 630-243-0800 and my Springfield office at 217-782-9407. Or you can contact me through email at
