On Wednesday, State Representative Christine Winger (R-Wood Dale) took the oath of office with 117 other members of the 100th General Assembly. The historic inauguration took place at the University of Illinois at Springfield. Winger won re-election to the Illinois Legislature last November and will begin her second term in the House of Representatives

“I am honored to continue representing 45th District families,” said Winger. “Over the last two years I’ve learned a great deal about how Springfield works and look forward to being an effective voice on behalf of my constituents.”

Passing a comprehensive and responsible budget remains a top priority for Winger but her work doesn’t end there.

Winger will continue her service on the School Funding Reform Commission where she has an important role in ensuring every child in Illinois receives a quality education. She also remains committed to property tax relief, reducing the noise impact from O’Hare, protecting and caring for the most vulnerable, and ensuring high paying jobs remain in Illinois.

Winger is hard at work and has already filed legislation for the upcoming session. Follow her legislation and other initiatives on
