Jesiel Continues Work to Improve Government Efficiency

SPRINGFIELD – State Representative Sheri Jesiel (R-Winthrop Harbor) passes bill to promote government efficiency with full House support.

In what has become an all too rare occasion in Springfield, members of the Illinois House voted unanimously last week to advance legislation that removes a duplicative process in state government. House Bill 4115 allows the Departments of Agriculture (IDOA) and Department of Human Services (IDHS) to provide service station information in one location on the IODA’s website. A link to IODA’s list will then be placed on the IDHS website, rather than both needing to maintain full lists on their websites.

“We face major challenges with efficiency and wasteful spending in Illinois government,” said Jesiel. “This is a small change, but it is a stepping stone to promote greater efficiency in government and hopefully help lead to more in the future.”

The bill is now in the Senate where it is expected to be moved for passage quickly. To follow this legislation, or any other legislation, visit www.ilga.gov.
