When lawmakers travel to Springfield this week to begin vetting the hundreds of bills that have already been filed in the 100th General Assembly, State Representative Tom Morrison (R-Palatine) will continue in his role as the Republican Spokesperson for the House Personnel & Pensions Committee.
“Aside from the need for a budget, there is no more pressing issue in our state than our pension system and the drain it has on available revenue,” said Morrison. “It is my honor to return as the ranking Republican for this critical committee.”
Morrison was also chosen to serve as the Republican Spokesperson for the Elementary & Secondary Education: Charter Schools Committee, and as a member of the Environment, Economic Justice, and Insurance: Health & Life Committees.
“These are all excellent committee assignments, and I appreciate the opportunity to have a role in shaping public policy in these key areas,” Morrison said.
