Anderson reflects as 100th General Assembly Begins
As the historic 100th General Assembly kicked off on Wednesday, January 11, Senator Neil Anderson (Rock Island) looked back on the last two years, and ahead to the challenges still facing the State of Illinois.
“As the new members were sworn in to the Senate today I couldn’t help but think back to when I was sworn in as a new member two years ago. While we still have a lot of issues to tackle, I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish,” said Anderson. “We’ve passed legislation that saved more than 800 jobs in the 36th District, and I’ve passed several bills to support our veterans that I’m really proud of.
“Illinois faces some serious challenges as the 100th General Assembly begins, but I think we can continue to live in hope that a solution may not be far off. I am as committed today as I was two years ago to creating a better future for the people of the 36th Senate District, and look forward to serving them for another two years.”
