As a mother of three, I cannot imagine a world where we don’t aggressively protect our environment and take action to combat climate change. We have to leave the world a better place than what we found for our children, and ensure that our communities have clean air and clean water for generations to come.
As state representative and member of the Illinois Green Caucus, I’ve prioritized protecting our environment, and doing so in a manner that supports economic development. I couldn’t be prouder of the passage of the national landmark Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA), which puts Illinois on a climate neutral state by 2045. In addition to passing CEJA, we are incentivizing alternate modes of transportation, such as electric vehicles, by allocating funds for consumer rebates and implementing charging infrastructure statewide.
