McAuliffe Named Spokesperson of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs

The historic 100th Illinois General Assembly is now into full motion and with that marks the beginning of committee formation. State Representative Michael McAuliffe (R-Chicago) has been announced as the minority spokesperson for the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, an honor maintained for the past several years. A known advocate for veterans, McAuliffe was pleased to continue working with the General Assembly to pass meaningful legislation aimed at making programs for veterans accessible and affordable.

“Our veterans selflessly sacrificed a great portion of their lives for the well-being of all of us,” said McAuliffe. “The House Veterans’ Affairs Committee is a tool of the State of Illinois to develop ways in which we can show our appreciation for their sacrifice by enacting programs to aid and assist in their civilian lives. I look forward to working with my colleagues on proposing thoughtful legislation to help out Illinois veterans.”

In addition, Rep. McAuliffe was also appointed to the House Committees on Public Utilities, Public Safety Appropriations, Healthcare Availability, Healthcare Licenses and the Special Committee on Police & First Responders.
