News from State Rep Anthony DeLuca

 

Dear valued constituent,

The May 31st scheduled adjournment date for the Illinois General Assembly has once again come and gone without passing a responsible, balanced budget. Unfortunately, despite the efforts being made, republicans and democrats have been unable to reach an agreement.

May 31st marked the 700th day Illinois has gone without a budget.  This is shameful and unacceptable.  Our safety net programs to protect the most vulnerable are being decimated while our higher education institutions are being starved.  Clearly, the governor and legislators have plenty of work left to do, which is why the Illinois House of Representative will remain in continuous session throughout the summer to work on a budget.  The budget appropriation committees will immediately conduct hearings to work towards a budget resolution.

Under these circumstances, it’s easy to point fingers and cast blame.  That process is well underway with more to come.  Most people I talk to are sick and tired of being told who’s to blame and demand results now!  There’s plenty of blame to go around and the time has come to get the job done.  You have my commitment and I promise to do my part in this process and work towards the adoption of a responsible, balanced budget.

Although we’re in the midst of a budget impasse in Illinois, legislators were still busy in Springfield representing our constituents.  On May 31st, I filed House Bill 4062.  HB4062 amends the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act to establish that online real estate database providers that collect and disseminate information concerning residential real estate in Illinois and provide grades, rankings, or other pertinent information for schools or school districts, are required to use the aforementioned rankings developed annually by the Illinois State Board of Education.

 

Currently, real estate websites that provide school ranking information use data from a variety of organizations.  Unfortunately, at times schools I represent have determined the information provided on these websites to be outdated. Therefore, HB4062 objective is to ensure important information about schools or school districts provided on a real estate website will be accurate and updated on an annual basis.

Have a great day and I’ll be in touch with additional updates.  Thank you very much for your continued support!
