253 New Laws Take Effect January 1 in Illinois

There are 253 new state laws with a January 1, 2019 effective date. Many of these new laws simply clarify existing statutes, while others improve transparency and overall government processes. Still others represent entirely new ideas that are now becoming law.

This year I was successful in passing 12 bills into law, more than any other member of the House Republican Caucus. My new laws promote efficiency and cost savings in state government, ease barriers to government consolidation, ensure counselors in our schools are properly qualified, strengthen human rights protections, help our service members, veterans and their families, and so much more. Each of my new laws was a small step toward the goal of making State government more effective, efficient and responsive to the people of Illinois.
