Illinois Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) announced on Thursday that State Senator Chris Nybo (R-Elmhurst) would be joining his leadership team as a Senate Republican Whip.
“It’s my privilege to have Senator Nybo on my leadership team,” said Brady. “Senator Nybo has continually stood up for both his constituents and for the caucus—and he never shies away from a challenge. I look forward to working with him closely in the weeks and months ahead.”
Nybo has represented the 24st District in the Illinois Senate since August of 2014 and previously served in the House of Representatives from 2011 through 2013.
“I want to thank Leader Brady for choosing me to serve on his leadership team and for putting his faith in my ability to help Senate Republicans be an advocate for Illinois families,” said Nybo. “By combining efforts with Leader Brady’s Senate Republican leadership team, the Republican caucus and our colleagues from across the aisle, we can face the state’s challenges head-on and put Illinois on the right path moving forward.”
In the Senate, Nybo serves as the Minority Spokesperson for the Executive Committee and the Financial Institutions Committee, and he also serves on the Commerce and Development Committee, Energy and Public Utilities Committee, and Gaming Committee. Additionally, Nybo serves on the Subcommittee on Constitutional Amendments, Committee of the Whole, Special Committee on Oversight of Medicaid Managed Care, and the Modes of Transportation for Elementary and Secondary Education Task Force.
This appointment takes effect immediately.
