Appointed by Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady
Senator Paul Schimpf (R-Waterloo) is pleased to share he has been appointed to the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR). Senate Minority Leader Bill Brady shared the news with Sen. Schimpf earlier this week.
"Senator Schimpf's experience, commitment, and dedication to the people of Illinois made him the perfect choice to fill this important position," said Sen. Brady.
“I’m grateful for this opportunity to serve the State of Illinois in this manner,” said Sen. Schimpf. “I’ll do my best to carry out the duties of the seat and keep the interests of our citizens at the forefront of my mind.”
The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules is a bipartisan legislative oversight committee created by the General Assembly in 1977. Pursuant to the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act, the committee is authorized to conduct systematic reviews of administrative rules promulgated by State agencies.
JCAR is composed of 12 legislators who are appointed by the legislative leadership, with the membership apportioned equally between the two houses and the two political parties. The committee is co-chaired by two members representing each party and each legislative house.
The appointment takes effect immediately. The first JCAR meeting Sen. Schimpf will attend will be held at the Michael A. Bilandic Building in Chicago on Oct. 16, at 11 a.m. The committee’s latest meeting agenda can be found on the JCAR page on ilga.gov.
