Rep. Brady: “I’m glad the Governor is ready to work on long overdue ethics reforms.”

In response to the Governor’s priorities outlined in his State of the State Address to the General Assembly today, State Representative Dan Brady said he was pleased to hear the Governor say he is ready to support long-overdue ethics reforms, and is willing to talk about ways to reduce families’ property tax burden.

“These have been top priorities of mine for years,” Rep. Brady noted. “Investigations, arrests, and indictments of public officials have hung over Illinois like a dark storm cloud for far too long.  Last fall, my Republican colleagues and I proposed a package of reforms to hold elected officials accountable, and today the Governor signaled that he is ready to work with us on some of our proposals.”

“I was also pleased to hear the Governor’s willingness to work with us to provide families property tax relief, and to help create jobs. We must deliver to stop the exodus of families and businesses from our state. It would appear that the only person now standing in our way of achieving these critical goals in the House is Speaker Madigan,” Brady concluded.
