WATCH LIVE: Inauguration of 100th General Assembly

The 100th Illinois General Assembly begins today, with new and returning members of the Illinois House of Representatives and Illinois State Senate gathering in Springfield to take the oath of office surrounded by family and friends. I would like to say “Thank You” to the families and taxpayers of the 42nd District for once again giving me the privilege of serving as your voice in our state capital for the next two years. Since 2013, I have fought for our shared values and common-sense reforms to state government.

You can watch the swearing-in ceremony for the House of Representatives LIVE by clicking HERE. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at Noon.

This 100th General Assembly will coincide with Illinois’ Bicentennial celebration next year. We will be sharing memorable historical facts throughout the year to commemorate Illinois’ 200th birthday in 2018, giving you an opportunity to learn about the men and women who have shaped our state over the years and whose legacy we inherit. It is up to us to preserve and strengthen that legacy, and to pass on to our children a State of Illinois where all our citizens can live, work and raise a family in liberty and prosperity. 

Share Your Feedback: Ives 2017 Constituent Survey

It is vitally important for me to receive input from constituents like you. Your feedback helps me to know where residents of our district stand on a wide range of policy questions of concern to Illinois families and taxpayers. For that reason, I have posted a 2017 Survey on my website, www.jeanneives.org. Please take a few moments at your convenience to complete the survey and share your questions and comments directly with me.

All of the issues covered in the survey have been considered by the state legislature in the past; and are likely to be again in 2017. To take my survey, please click HERE. Thank you in advance for your feedback. It is sincerely appreciated.
