Today I joined my colleagues on the Education Funding Advisory Committee in announcing the School Funding Reform Act of 2014, which is a proposal to streamline the current funding structure for public education into one funding formula.

This proposal would provide a more equitable funding stream for public education in Illinois and offer more transparency in how education dollars are spent.

In January, I wrapped up a six-month effort to meet with every municipality and discuss the transportation and infrastructure improvements most vital to their cities, villages and towns. I want to make sure state transportation officials know the needs of Lake County and its communities and that we finally get the investment in projects that we’ve long deserved.

Please help me fight for our communities by signing my petition to show that transportation needs in Lake County must be a state priority.
