Senator Jil Tracy has been appointed to a Senate Republican leadership post as the Illinois General Assembly gears up for its 102nd biennial legislative session.
The 47th District Senator has been named Senate Republican Whip by Senate Republican Leader Designate Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods). In that role, she will work closely with the rest of the Leadership team on guiding legislation and setting policy.
“The interests and concerns of 47th District residents will remain my top priorities, but as Senate Whip, I will be able to bring our region’s commonsense and real-life insight to the discussion about issues like creating jobs and easing the tax burden for working families and businesses,” Senator Tracy said. “Such issues affect us all as Illinois citizens.”
Senator Tracy has served in the Senate since November 2016. She had previously served as a member of the House of Representatives from 2006 to 2014.
“Senator Tracy is widely respected not just in our caucus, but the General Assembly as whole,” said Leader Designate McConchie. “She knows exactly who she is and what she is here to do. That confidence and understanding of what Illinois needs to become more successful is invaluable in our leadership team. We will rely heavily on her experience and insight as our Republican Senate Caucus Whip.”
The 102nd General Assembly is scheduled to begin January 13, following the inauguration of its members.
For the current 101st General Assembly, Senator Tracy is the Republican Spokesperson for the Senate Telecommunications and Information Technology Committee, and for the Government Accountability/Ethics Committee. She also serves as a member of the Agriculture, Executive Appointments, Judiciary, Labor, and State Government committees.
Senator Tracy’s district offices are located at 3701 East Lake Centre Dr., Suite 3, Quincy, IL 62305 (217-223-0833) and 331 N. Lafayette St., Macomb, IL 61455 (217-214-9705).
