Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle now have an opportunity in the coming months to work with the Governor and good government groups to craft campaign finance reform that incorporates ideas from all parties and shows the public they are serious about limiting political contributions and increasing transparency.
Senate Republicans are pushing for a number of additions to the reform package, including more stringent campaign finance limits, a recall provision in the state’s constitution, a revision of how the state draws its legislative districts, and a special election to fill any future U.S. Senate seat vacancies.
INSURANCE HOTLINE AVAILABLE TO HELP CONSUMERS
Illinois consumers with insurance questions can get help from a statewide, toll-free hotline.
The Illinois Insurance Hotline is an industry-sponsored resource that has provided consumers with access to unbiased information about a wide range of insurance topics for 18 years. Consultants are available by calling 1-800-444-3338 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The hotline offers information to help consumers make decisions about insurance issues. It does not sell insurance or recommend specific companies. Callers can talk with a consultant who can either answer their questions or send them informational materials.
