With the Illinois General Assembly beginning its regular legislative session, State Representative Litesa Wallace (D-Rockford), will be meeting with local residents to talk about the latest developments during a Coffee Shop Stop on Monday at 11 a.m. at Katie’s Cup, 502 7th St. Free coffee will be provided to attendees.
“With the governor’s recent budget address, I want to share with residents my reaction as well as how I see things moving forward,” Wallace said. “Additionally, I want to hear from constituents directly about the issues that matter to them, and how I can best represent them in Springfield.”
Along with discussing the state budgets residents are also free to discuss state and local matters they find important. Wallace will also be highlighting legislation that she has filed this month that could affect child care assistance, police investigations and foster child care, among other topics.
“At this time of year, new legislation is being introduced and I want to hear the reaction of local residents,” Wallace said. “Many bills can be tweaked, and I am open to suggestions that could enhance bills that I have introduced. My most important relationship as state representative is with those I represent, and I look forward to hearing their thoughts.”
