Rep. Conroy Steps Up with Legislation to Save Lives

SPRINGFIELD — We send our state representatives and senators to the Capitol to work on difficult issues. Rep. Deb Conroy is proving that progress can be made to help people.

Her legislation to help prevent tragic stories like that of Mikayla King, burned accidently from bath water where a hot water heater did not have a safety valve, has moved through the Illinois House. Read more here about Mikayla’s story.

And her tireless work with advocates like Wendy Nawara to defeat a rare autoimmune disorder known as PANDAS is also getting attention in Springfield. Read more about Wendy’s story on improving Charlie’s Law here.
