Rep. David Olsen Sends Three Additional Bills to Governor Rauner for Final Action

SPRINGFIELD…..As the deadline approaches for the passage of House and Senate Bills in the General Assembly, today State Representative David S. Olsen sent three additional pieces of legislation to Governor Bruce Rauner for his signature.
  • HB 5031: Removes a duplicative reporting requirement between state agencies and human service providers. It received unanimous House and Senate Support. 
  • SB 2658: Lengthens to three years (currently two years) the period of time during which a provisional educator endorsement for a service member or spouse is valid. It received unanimous support in the Senate and was approved in a 105-1 vote in the House. 
  • SB 2721: Streamlines the process of regulatory oversight and aligns the licensing process of financial technology (fintech) companies by entering Illinois into a newly-created interstate compact with Georgia, Kansas, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Washington. It received unanimous support in the House and Senate. 
“I am extremely proud to have received such wide, bipartisan support on these three bills,” said Olsen. “HB 5031 and SB 2758 amend our state statutes to improve processes, and SB 2721 streamlines licensing regulations for certain businesses in a way that will save them money.”

Governor Rauner is expected to sign all three bills into law in the upcoming weeks.
