Area residents are invited to learn about new state laws going into effect at an information session hosted by state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, on Thursday, Jan. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Aurora Public Library, located at 555 S. Eola Road in Aurora.

“This past year, we enacted a large number of new laws that will begin to affect our community starting in January,” said Kifowit. “This event will help inform residents about the new laws and touch on how residents can keep track of new bills as they go through the legislative process.”

Among the pieces of legislation Kifowit will highlight is a measure to protect students from being questioned or detained by school supervisors without the presence of their parent, guardian or mental health professional. She also passed a bill to streamline the process of the Secretary of State to issue drivers licenses or identification cards with the word “veteran” to qualified veterans and passed legislation to give voters the opportunity to choose an elected local library board.

Also at the event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to navigate and understand the Illinois General Assembly (ILGA) website so residents can track bills going through the legislative process and share their thoughts.

“Residents may have questions about how these new laws will impact them and their families,” said Kifowit. “This is an opportunity to ask questions, and the feedback I receive will assist me as I continue my work in Springfield.”

For more information about the event, or to RSVP, please contact Kifowit’s full-time constituent office at 630-585-1308
