Simon congratulates members of 98th General Assembly

SPRINGFIELD – Lt. Governor Sheila Simon today attended the inauguration ceremony for members of the Illinois House of Representatives and issued the following statement congratulating all new members of the Illinois General Assembly sworn in today.

“I would like to welcome and congratulate the men and women who today became members of the Illinois legislature. There are a number of extremely important issues facing our state that will be addressed by the 98th General Assembly, and I applaud their dedication to serving the public and tackling these issues.

“I would also like to congratulate Senate President John Cullerton, Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno, House Speaker Michael Madigan and House Minority Leader Tom Cross, who were selected to continue leading their caucuses. I appreciate their bipartisan work on behalf of the people of Illinois.

“I look forward to working with the 98th General Assembly as we find solutions that will enable us to pay our bills and bring our fiscal house in order, while continuing to fund priorities like education, health care and social services. We must also work together to restore faith in government by passing ethics reform legislation.”
