After the usual, friendly “freshman hazing” by his Senate colleagues, State Sen. Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) passed his first bill through the Illinois Senate on April 27.
“It is an honor to serve the people of Illinois and represent the constituents of the 59th District. I am humbled by the opportunity and look forward to working with my legislative colleagues to advance our great state,” Fowler said.
Senate Bill 1876 repeals the David A. Wirsing Food Animal Institute Act.
The legislation is part of an attempt by Senator Fowler to help streamline the Illinois Compiled Statutes and remove old or unused laws which make the state’s business climate unfriendly.
Senate Bill 1876 now heads to the House of Representatives for consideration.
