End Lame Duck Sessions in Illinois
On Tuesday, I joined House Republican Leader Jim Durkin and my colleagues in the House Republican caucus to unveil legislation seeking to put an end to lame duck sessions of the Illinois General Assembly by moving up the date of inauguration. This proposal also requires the outgoing to General Assembly to conclude their work by Election Day.
The General Assembly’s two-year legislative session was created to allow more than enough time to move legislative through the appropriate channels while also holding lawmakers responsible for their actions and inactions on Election Day. When elected officials are no longer held accountable to their constituents, mistakes could be made at the expense of the taxpayers.
Pihos (R-Glen Ellyn) issued the following response
to the Governor’s State of the State Address on
Wednesday. Pihos says that while some of the
initiatives set forth in the speech are admirable,
the Governor failed to outline a realistic plan for
“Unfortunately, there were times during the
Governor’s speech where I wasn't sure we lived in
the same state. It is obvious families are leaving
Illinois at an alarming rate, ranking second highest
in the country for outward migration. A recent
analysis by Moody’s predicts Illinois to be dead
last in the nation for job creation this year. While
I am glad to hear the Governor is finally committed
to creating jobs, he has said this before and the
results have been devastating,” said Pihos. “While
I agree some of the initiatives laid out in his plan
are laudable, the current fiscal condition of our
state simply cannot support them.”
DAILY HERALD ENDORSES SANDRA PIHOS!
Feb 20, 2014
"We endorse the incumbent, Sandra M. Pihos of Glen Ellyn.......She’s been an active participant on the Illinois Audit Commission, a key tool in fighting waste; a strong proponent of budget transparency; and an effective foe of funding shift proposals that would increase the tax burdens on suburbanites......... we think Pihos’ legislative experience provides her with a more practical view of how to get things done in Springfield."
