SPRINGFIELD — State Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, was sworn in this week as a member of the 99th General Assembly and reaffirmed his commitment to serving local residents.
“I am humbled by the honor of continuing to serve the people of the 11th District,” Beiser said. “We are at a critical point in the history of Illinois, where we all must work together, Democrats and Republicans, to move our state forward and address the challenges we face.”
Beiser will continue to push for fiscally responsible state budgets that prioritize funding for education, public safety, senior and disability services and work to cut waste and fraud. He will also demand the state make all required public pension payments.
As a member of the House Transportation Committee, Beiser plans on working to improve Illinois’ aging infrastructure. Whether it is repairing rundown roads and bridges or ensuring the Mississippi River and other waterways remain viable shipping routes, Beiser will continue to push for further investment in transportation priorities.
Beiser will continue his work to expand medical access to residents. To provide hope to patients and their families, Beiser is introducing legislation that would remove state barriers to terminal patients looking to take part in experimental treatments in the early stages of federal approval.
“An elected official’s responsibility is to ensure laws are in the best interest of Illinois taxpayers,” Beiser added. “When they don’t, we need to make changes to demand government works the way it should. I look forward to continuing as your state legislator and working together to make our state a better place to live and work.”
