Rep. Miller’s Statement on New House Rules for 102nd General Assembly

SPRINGFIELD… State Representative Chris Miller (R-Oakland) issued a statement following today’s vote on new House Rules for the 102nd General Assembly:

“Today we saw the Democrat House majority fail to uphold transparency and accountability in our state government. By implementing ‘new’ House Rules that fall well short of what the people of Illinois deserve, we the Members of the General Assembly will remain stuck in the status quo. Bills will still be brought forward with no time to review or discuss. Members, let alone the public, will have little time to know what we are voting on. Bills will still be sent off to die in committee without even a simple up or down vote. These old rules remain the ‘new rules’. It is for this reason I voted no. On behalf of the 110th District, I will fight to implement real, meaningful reforms in the House of Representatives.”
