The Illinois House Republican caucus today launched a new comprehensive platform called Reimagine Illinois. The plan outlines House Republicans’ priorities for the 102nd General Assembly and asks Illinoisans to ‘Reimagine’ their State and government if certain public policy goals are met.
- Imagine an Illinois where corruption isn’t making headlines and lawmakers are held accountable. Imagine an Illinois with a clean, honest, transparent State government.
- Imagine an Illinois where leaders take their fiscal responsibility seriously, watching every penny instead raising taxes, increasing spending, and piling up debt year-after-year.
- Imagine an Illinois where every community has good paying jobs and access to healthcare and educational opportunities that work for all students.
- Imagine an Illinois where all neighborhoods are free of senseless violence and our streets are safe places for our kids to grow up
Reimagine Illinois consists of four components, each of which includes a list of introduced bills to reflect those initiatives:
- Ending the culture of corruption
- Responsible fiscal leadership
- Growing jobs and opportunities for our families
- Ensuring public safety.
“Illinois needs significant change to become the state where our children and their children can continue to live and thrive,” said State Rep. Dan Ugaste. “I stand with my colleagues in working to facilitate that change, and this plan truly lays out the pathway forward to do just that.”
A multi-faceted website – ReimagineIllinois.com – includes various tools for the public to learn about the platform by downloading PDFS, watching member video summaries and signing a petition to get engaged.
“Not only does this plan create the changes that will make Illinois better for the future of our families, it will also make significant strides for businesses by promoting economic growth and job creation,” continued Ugaste. “Reimagine Illinois addresses all of our state’s serious roadblocks to success, including the current policies in place that make it difficult for businesses to stay in Illinois. We can be a leader in many areas if we utilize this plan and take that first step.”
