HELP! Contact your Representative on S.B. 317—how to and what to say!

call your representative

HELP!   We need to contact your Illinois General Assembly Representative!  and share this post with all your FB friends!

  1. Find your State Representative, using our post: “How to find and contact your Illinois State Senator or State Representative.” 

2)    Call (preferable) or email your representative. Here is a short script to help:

Hi, I am YOUR NAME.
I’m calling to ask Representative XXXX to save the Illinois State Museum by voting yes on S.B. 317* which has passed the Senate and will soon be up for vote in the House. Governor Rauner has announced his intention to close the Illinois State Museum, and layoff notices have already been announced. The bill requires the state to keep the Museum open.

Thank you.

Sponsored by Representative Emily McAsey (D-Lockport) and co-sponsored by Representatives Raymond Poe (R-Springfield),  Sue Scherer (D-Springfield & Decatur),  John E. Bradley (D-Marion),  Tim Butler (R-Springfield),  Brandon W. Phelps (D-Harrisburg),  Arthur Turner (D-Chicago), Mike Smiddy (D-Port Byron) and Camille Y. Lilly (D-Chicago).

FYI:   S. B. 317 keeps the same name and number in the House as it had in the Senate.
