SPRINGFIELD, IL – State Sen. Sue Rezin (R-Morris) was inaugurated into Illinois’ 98th General Assembly on Jan. 9, with her family, staff and other supporters present. The inauguration marks Sen. Rezin’s second term in the Illinois Senate.
Sen. Rezin said that this General Assembly will be full of challenges, and inaction on several major issues would be detrimental for the state. She feels confident that bipartisan reforms will take place in order to put Illinois back on the road to a gradual recovery.
“It’s not going to be easy, but it absolutely must be done,” she said.
As a part of the inauguration ceremonies, Sen. Rezin was asked to nominate Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) for a third term as Leader. Sen. Rezin said she was honored to second Sen. Radogno’s nomination to lead the Senate Republican Caucus for the 98th General Assembly.
Sen. Rezin acknowledged her family, staff and others who have supported her during time in the legislature.
“I appreciate the support I have received from my family and others,” Sen. Rezin said. “I could not have gotten here without them, and their continual support is much appreciated. It is an honor to continue to represent the 38th District in Illinois. I feel that we have accomplished a lot for the district, but I look forward to accomplishing even more during this new General Assembly.”
