fine swearingin 010719GLENVIEW – State Senator Laura Fine (D – Glenview) was sworn into office on Sunday to represent Illinois’ 9th Senate District.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to represent the people of the 9th District,” said Fine, who represents several of Chicago’s north suburbs including Glenview, Evanston, Winnetka and Skokie. “A new year with a new incoming administration means plenty of fresh opportunities to enact the change Illinoisans deserve, and I’m excited to get to work.”

 

Her priorities for the new session include safeguarding the environment, finding solutions to reduce gun violence, and protecting citizens’ healthcare rights. Fine was Chair of the House Committee on Health and Life insurance as a member of House of Representatives in the 100th General Assembly, where she represented the 17th House District.

Fine, who was elected to the 9th District seat in November, will finish the remaining few days of outgoing Senator Daniel Biss’ term before beginning her own term for the 101st General Assembly on Wednesday, Jan. 9.
