Illinoiscapitol2SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) released the statement below following Governor Rauner’s 2017 State of the State Address.  

“It’s discouraging that once again, the governor failed to lay out a specific plan to solve our budget crisis weeks after state funding ended for higher education, services for the elderly, mental illness, those with disabilities and the most vulnerable.

“In the Senate, I look forward to continuing to lead the way toward a bipartisan budget compromise that closes corporate tax loopholes and freezes property taxes, while producing a bipartisan budget deal for the first time in over two years.”

“I hear from constituents across the district that they have received calls and emails from anonymous strangers looking for personal information,” Murphy said. “This presentation will provide helpful tips to show you how to protect yourself from these financial schemes.”

051916CM1116SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) joined with her colleagues in the Senate to support a 10-year term limit for the President of the Senate and Senate Minority Leader. The term limits were put in place by a change to the Senate Rules.  

Murphy has been a leading advocate for term limits since she sponsored a Constitutional Amendment to enact them when she joined the Senate in 2015.

“Term limits for legislative leaders is the top concern I hear while talking to constituents in my community,” Murphy said.  “I have heard them and agree – leadership positions are not meant to be lifetime appointments.”

The term limits became effective following approval of the Senate Rules for the new General Assembly.
