Illinois State Senate District 51 issued the following announcement on Jan. 29.

Senator Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) released the following statement regarding Illinois Governor JB Pritzker’s State of the State address:

“Governor Pritzker gave a good speech laying out his vision for Illinois. But, after the much vaunted summer/fall property tax relief task force empowered by the Democrat majorities imploded, I definitely would have liked to hear more specifics from the Governor on the issue of property tax relief for working families.

On ethics reform, I don’t see how you can have ‘ethics reform’ that doesn’t tackle changing the way legislative redistricting is done. As I see it, as long as legislators are drawing their own districts - for their own self-interest - you are going to continue to have problems. His speech didn’t have a single word devoted to Fair Maps and I think he missed a major opportunity. It is beyond time to give the people of Illinois their state back.”
