As with most people on earth, I breathe air and drink water to live. I prefer, as I assume most do, the air and water we breath to be clean. From a societal perspective, we must take active measures to ensure our air and water quality continue to improve. As your representative, I will work with fellow lawmakers to draft legislation that protects our water and air quality. I will work to make Illinois the “Gold Standard” when it comes to protecting the environment. Let us lead the United States in a category other than incarcerated governors.
I am also a strong proponent for increasing fuel efficiency standards. From a consumer's perspective, filling up less often at the pump leads to more money in your pocket because Fuel-efficient vehicles require less gas to go a given distance. When we burn less gas, we use less oil and produce less pollution.
