Breen helps 48th House District constituents learn how to appeal property tax assessments
Rep. Peter Breen (R-Lombard) recently hosted a session for 48th House District residents on how to understand and appeal property tax assessments.
The 90-minute session was held in Glen Ellyn on Aug. 28, with Breen taking to Facebook to extend an invitation to all area residents interested in attending.
In a separate post, Breen took a bow for co-sponsoring the bill that amends the Illinois Vehicle Code to allow Soaring Eagle Academy K-8 students to be transported to and from educational activities using school transportation.
Up until now, only students in 9th through 12th grade were allowed to be transported off-site using school transportation, according to the Chicago Tribune. Gov. Bruce Rauner officially signed off on the law-changing measure earlier this month.
“My bill to help kids at Soaring Eagle use their multi-purpose bus for field trips, which state law unnecessarily prohibited, is now law,” Breen posted on Facebook, alongside a photo of him and state Sen. Chris Nybo (R-Elmhurst), the bill’s co-sponsor.
As an Illinois State Board of Education-approved therapeutic day school, Lombard-based Soaring Eagle serves the educational needs of autistic children by providing “an academic and social learning environment.”
Still in his first term, Breen is running for re-election against Democrat Terra Costa Howard in the 48th House District in November’s general election.
The 48th District includes all or parts of Downers Grove, Glen Ellyn, Lisle, Lombard, Oak Brook and Villa Park.
