Majority Party Continues To Put Politics Before Helpful Legislative Priorities

While we were busy fighting to provide relief for working families, improve public safety, and fight health care worker shortages, Democrats prioritized a ban on kangaroo ownership. 

Unfortunately, this is an all-too-common experience in Springfield. The majority party continually puts politics before people and refuses to move Republican bills, despite the fact that these measures would improve the lives of not only the millions of residents we represent, but all Illinoisans.

Before Democrats abruptly adjourned a day early for the weekend, I had some comments on these misplaced legislative priorities on the House Floor. See the video below.
