Governor Signs Jesiel Bill to Improve Government Efficiency

SPRINGFIELD – State Representative Sheri Jesiel (R-Winthrop Harbor) passed a bill to promote government efficiency this past spring, which was signed into law by Gov. Rauner today.

In what has become an all too rare occasion in Springfield, members of the Illinois House voted unanimously to advance the 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 IDOA’s website. A link to IDOA’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 Jesiel’s first major piece of legislation to be signed into law since taking office in January and follows one of her primary goals of improving efficiency in Illinois Government.
