State Senator Seth Lewis (R-Bartlett) will be presenting a legislative end-of-session report to members of the League of Women Voters of Roselle/Bloomingdale (LWVRB) on the evening of Wednesday, June 28. The 6:30 – 7:30 PM event will take place in the training room at the Roselle Fire Station, located at 100 E. Maple Avenue in Roselle.
“I appreciate the invitation to share an end-of-session recap with this group, and appreciate the League’s involvement in empowering people and promoting voter participation in this region,” said Lewis. “I invite all members to attend, and look forward to an interactive conversation about the bills that passed this year, and initiatives that came up short.”
The LWVRB was formed in 2012. League membership is open to people ages 16 and over.
“There are many good stories of bipartisanship that came out of the 2023 spring session, and it was a pleasure to work alongside colleagues from both sides of the aisle this year to pass meaningful bills in several issue areas,” Lewis said. “In fact, the overwhelming majority of bills that pass in Springfield have either unanimous or strong bipartisan support. We need to celebrate these collaborative efforts while always working to be respectful of different points of view on the issues where we disagree.”
Over 550 bills passed during the 2023 session year. Some have already been signed into law, but most still await final action by the Governor.
