Springfield, IL – State Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora) released the following statement on Senate Bill 1.

“This bill is fundamentally flawed and simply unconstitutional,” Holmes said.  “I worked out a proposal with our unions.  That measure passed the Senate with overwhelming support.  I stand by our teachers and prison guards and other people who spent their lives serving the people of Illinois.”
