Regardless of what the Supreme Court does, abortion will remain safe and legal in Illinois. In 2017, we recognized that an extremist court could put women’s rights at risk, so Illinois Democrats passed a law that removed dangerous trigger provisions from state law that could have banned abortion if Roe v. Wade was recklessly overturned. (HB 40, 100th GA, Public Act 100-0538)

Governor Pritzker Announces $250 Million in Grant Awards for Small Businesses

I am proud to have supported this legislation. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, our small businesses and nonprofits faced unprecedented challenges as they struggled to make payroll, keep the doors open, and continue providing the services our residents rely on. The Back to Business grant program was able to provide millions of dollars in grant funding to help organizations get through these difficult times and emerge in a position of strength.

Read Justice Alito's initial draft abortion opinion which would overturn Roe v. Wade

Women will die if Roe vs. Wade is overturned – women who are forced to give birth knowing it will kill them, women who will seek abortions in back alleys, and more.

In the state legislature, I’ve voted to ensure Illinois will remain the most pro-choice state in the country regardless of the Supreme Court’s decision, but millions of women live in states where legislators have already put laws in place to rip away their right to choose the second the Court’s ruling is official.

I am terrified that I will be bringing my baby girl into a world where she has fewer rights than her grandmother once had, but I’m committed to fighting like hell to protect this fundamental freedom.

Read the full 98-page initial draft majority opinion.

05/03/2022

Weeks ago when my Republican colleagues said that strengthening reproductive freedom in Illinois was a waste of time, I reminded them: protecting the rights of women is never a waste of time. The recent reports on overturning Roe vs. Wade show exactly why we need to continue fighting to protect women’s reproductive rights in our state and our country.

New Illinois law requires dementia training for EMTs | Illinois Public Media

Thank you to The 21st for having me on today to speak about my legislation to require EMTs and paramedics in Illinois to receive training on the diagnosis, treatment, and care of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. I’m proud that this legislation is headed to the Governor’s desk so we can ensure that first responders are equipped with the tools needed to respond to the unique challenges individuals with dementia face. Listen here:

A bill passed this month in Illinois will require training Emergency Medical Technicians and paramedics to look out for these signs of dementia, making Illinois the first state to require this kind of training. The 21st was joined by the leader of an Illinois Alzheimer's group, one of the bill's spo...
