Congressman Danny K. Davis (D-7th) will be hosting a town hall in Maywood tonight, Tue. August 25, 2015, 7 PM, at village council chambers, 125 S. 5th Avenue.
Topics will include:
AFFORDABLE CARE ACT
JOBS AND THE ECONOMY
ANY OTHER ISSUE RESIDENTS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT
State Rep. Emanuel ‘Chris’ Welch will be holding a town hall meeting tomorrow, Saturday, April 13, 2013, from 1pm – 2:30pm, inside of the Maywood Council Chambers at 125 S. 5th Avenue. Here are a few legislative initiatives (pulled from his weekly legislative report) that may be discussed:
Springfield, Illinois – Lawmakers returned to Springfield this week after a two week break for Easter. The legislative session was extremely busy and productive for the Illinois House of Representatives. I am proud to report that a number of bills that I have sponsored and/or co-sponsored with other colleagues are on the move.
Gang Crimes Witness Protection Act Created
HB1139 creates the Gang Crimes Witness Protection Act. This bill passed out of the House of Representatives on a vote of 112-0, and it is headed to the Senate for consideration. This important legislation creates a state witness protection program, and it will end the code of silence among gang members. As such, it will help law enforcement put criminals behind bars.
Legislators Required to Take Pay Cuts
HB1441, which passed the House of Representatives on a vote of 108-1, is legislation that cuts the salary of lawmakers by making lawmakers work 12 days without pay and freezing cost of living increases for legislators and other elected officials. I co-sponsored this legislation, and I was proud to lead by example when we are asking working families across the state to do the same.
Mandatory Reporting of Gang Activity Required among Schools and Law Enforcement
HB2768 mandates Reciprocal Reporting of Gang Activity between local schools and local law enforcement. This bill passed out of the House of Representatives on a vote of 106-7, and it is headed to the Senate for consideration. This important legislation mandates that local schools and local law enforcement agencies report illegal possession of guns and illegal activity of students to each other and is specifically designed to protect the welfare of students, teachers and staff.
