Representative Jim Durkin Gives Thoughts Before State Of The State Address

The Illinois General Assembly met for the first time in 2020 on Tuesday in Springfield and lawmakers are eager to get to work. Illinois House Republicans discussed their 2020 legislative priorities in a press conference at the capital.  House Republican Leader Jim Durkin highlighted some of the accomplishments in the last few years.



Durkin says that there is still a lot that needs to be done, especially with bringing residents back to Illinois.



Durkin says that the House Republican caucus has three goals: property tax reform, ending politically drawn legislative districts and passing significant ethics reforms.


The group met before the Governor’s State of the State Address on Wednesday at noon.
