Rep. Mason seeks public input on state legislation
State Rep. Joyce Mason of Gurnee is encouraging area residents and local organizations to submit ideas for new legislation to be drafted and introduced during this year's legislative session.
Mason, a Democrat who represents the state's 61st District, is asking ideas to be submitted for review to joyce@repJoyceMason.com by Thursday, Jan. 24. Individuals whose idea is introduced as legislation may have the opportunity to testify at a committee hearing later in the year.
"It's important to me that the legislative process is more inclusive of residents with differing experiences, perspectives and needs," she said.
