State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) has been recognized by the Technology and Manufacturing Association (TMA) with a 100 percent score for his support of manufacturing in Illinois.

“I want to thank the Technology and Manufacturing Association for this recognition,” said Skillicorn. “To improve Illinois’ economy and grow jobs, we need to have a strong and thriving manufacturing sector. Between our location, resources and infrastructure network, our state has everything needed to be a manufacturing powerhouse and I will continue to make this a top priority of my work in Springfield.”

“No person should ever have to worry about being sexually victimized and it’s upsetting that we are still dealing with so many cases of harassment in 2017,” said Skillicorn. “The fact that we still are dealing with so many cases means we need to conduct a thorough review of the causes of the problem to produce lasting change. Another feel good solution is not good enough for this problem.”

Today, State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) applauded the failure of House Bill 4117 to clear the Illinois House of Representatives. Skillicorn said the overly broad and vague nature of the legislation would have made law-abiding citizens across Illinois felons simply for possessing common firearm modification equipment.

“House Bill 4117, as so often happens, was too hastily and poorly crafted in response to a terrible situation,” said Skillicorn. “Because of this, the bill failed to address the fear it was attempting to protect against and instead would have turned law-abiding citizens into felons had it not failed in the House today.”
