Topic: Illinois Pollution Control Board
The epitome of a female native Hyde Parker/University of Chicago Superstar, Barbara was the representative of the 24th district in the Illinois House of Representatives for 40 years from 1979 to 2019. During her tenure she co-sponsored bills that established the Illinois earned income tax credit, repealed capital punishment, and legalized same-sex marriage.
Immediately following Barbara's retirement from the Legislature, Governor Pritzker appointed her as Chair of the Illinois Pollution Control Board. In her talk, she will enlighten us about her current work on that Board.
Refreshments and conversation will be enjoyed afterwards, hosted by the Service League Book Group.
All are Welcome! Please bring a friend of neighbor.
