State Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, is inviting community members to reach out with ideas for legislation that they’d like to see introduced in the upcoming 103rd General Assembly.
“Here in Illinois, we mean it when we say our government is the people’s government,” Stuart said. “Participation by members of the community in devising new and improved public policy is invaluable and it also helps me to ensure that I am addressing the concerns of the people who elected me.”
The current 102nd General Assembly began in 2021 and will soon conclude. The 103rd General Assembly is slated to begin January 11, 2023, Inauguration Day.
Everyone is encouraged to submit ideas, no matter how simple or unpolished. Experience with the legislative process is not necessary.
“No idea is too small, too specific, or too broad,” Stuart said. “Ensuring that everyone has a voice in government is among my most important duties as an elected official. Providing a forum for ideas that’s accessible to anyone is an important part of that. I’m excited to see what my constituents come up with.”
Ideas should be submitted to Stuart’s constituent service office at 618-365-6650 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
