Today, State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) was appointed by House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) to a special task force formed to address sexual harassment and discrimination. The Task Force on Sexual Discrimination and Harassment will conduct a comprehensive review of sexual misconduct problems in Illinois and provide recommendations for action in 2018.

“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.”
State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) is inviting constituents to join him for a town hall meeting at his office in Crystal Lake on Wednesday, November 15. The town hall will feature an update from Skillicorn on the conclusion of the recent veto session, as well as a one-on-one meeting session prior to the main discussion. The event will be held at his district office located at 1500 Carlemont Dr., Suite D in Crystal Lake from 7 to 8 p.m.

“Despite a summer and fall filled with special legislative sessions, a lot of contentious issues came up this veto session,” said Skillicorn. “This town hall is to ensure people know what did, or did not, happen during veto session, and to get ready for the new session in January, because Illinois still has too many problems that need to be fixed.”
Speaking during debate on an Illinois Resolution calling for the federal government to cut support for our military service members, State Rep. Allen Skillicorn said the Illinois Legislature should be focused on fixing its own poor finances first.
