State Senator Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) has been appointed as Assistant Leader of the Senate Republican Caucus. Senator Rose spoke with Regional Radio News and said the new position will allow more focus on the state budget.
Senator Rose was one of the lead negotiators in the stopgap budget that was signed into law on June 30th. With the resignation of State Senator Matt Murphy (R-Palatine), another key budget negotiator, Senator Rose will continue to focus on securing a new state budget.
Senator Rose was appointed to this new position by Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) on September 15th. Senator Rose previously served as Senate Republican Whip.
