“I applaud the efforts of both Representative Ed Sullivan (R- Mundelein) and Representative Greg Harris (D-Chicago) for their work in presenting this commonsense and responsible legislation,” said House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs).

 “While the federal government plays a larger role in this complicated issue, I believe we have a responsibility to do our part,” Durkin added.  “I am proud to lend my support to House Bill 6588.”
