Accomplishments in our First Year

I was the chief co-sponsor of 13 bills, which means I led the process of drafting bill language, collaborating with community organizations, and recruiting my Senate colleagues to vote yes. All 13 bills passed in both chambers and were signed into law by Governor JB Pritzker.


Here is a quick breakdown of what each bill will do now that they have been signed into law. If you want more details, simply click on the bill number and you can see the legislation yourself!


In addition, I was proud to support key legislation that will support families across the 13th District and Illinois.

  • I voted yes on the Reproductive Health Act, which protects the right to an abortion and makes Illinois a leader in protecting reproductive health in the Midwest.

  • I supported the capital bill, which will invest billions of dollars in our roads, parks, schools, and more (all while supporting good-paying jobs for years to come). 

  • I helped stop the dangerous“pipeline protest” bill, which would have made protesting the building of new pipelines a felony offense in Illinois.

If this is what we were able to get done in one year,
imagine what we can do in two more!
