The Legislative and Governmental Affairs Committee has developed a list of priorities for DuPage County to propose and support during the 2018 spring session of the Illinois General Assembly. A brief discussion was held on the nine legislative priorities. The Committee voted unanimously in support of Resolution LEG-R-0039-18, which adopts the County’s Legislative Program.
