State Senator Andy Manar says that the Legislative Session accomplished what they set out to accomplish given the circumstances. Senator Manar says the focus on the session was getting a budget passed into law.
Senator Manar says despite COVID-19, Legislators continued to work to achieve a common goal—work across the aisle to bring the budget to vote.
Small business remains a focus for Senator Manar moving forward and he is happy that the State Government is working with the Federal Government on that front.
There were a few things that he was concerned about that didn’t get pushed through including affordability for pharmaceuticals, but being as it was a condensed session, the Senator says, there just wasn’t enough time.
State Senator Andy Manar represents the 48th District in Illinois.
