022522CM0723SPRINGFIELD – Following the overturning of Roe v. Wade, State Senator Adriane Johnson supported a measure that further enshrines reproductive health care rights in Illinois.

“One of my top priorities has been – and always will be – protecting basic fundamental rights of those in this state,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “People should have the right to make decisions about their body and proper access to reproductive health care. I’m proud of Illinois’ continuous fight to remain a safe haven.”

While several states have implemented more restrictive laws to diminish reproductive health care rights following the overturn of Roe vs. Wade, Illinois has continuously worked to enshrine those rights. House Bill 4664 protects health care professionals in Illinois from restrictive laws from other states and provides privacy and protections for people who seek abortion or gender-affirming care in Illinois.

Under the measure, Illinois health care providers will not be penalized for providing care that is illegal in another state but legal in Illinois, and people in Illinois won’t be punished for seeking reproductive health care that is lawful here.

The measure also calls for a number of other avenues to protect choice, including protecting in vitro fertilization, creating grants to provide abortion training, clarifying advance practice nurses can perform abortions, and more.

“Illinois has been a safe haven for women protecting their right to choose during this challenging time and will continue to do so,” said Johnson (D- Buffalo Grove). “Through this action, we are ensuring that Illinois remains a step ahead of states trying to outlaw such care.”

House Bill 4664 passed the Senate Tuesday and awaits further consideration from the House.

010623CM0184SPRINGFIELD – In an effort to ensure equitable and affordable housing in Illinois, State Senator Adriane Johnson supported a measure to increase the Rental Housing Support Program’s budget.  

“In today’s climate many people are struggling to meet basic necessities such as monthly rent,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “It’s imperative that we funnel funding back into our communities through programs such as Illinois Rental Housing Support Program in order to better assist our neighbors in meeting those needs.

Since 2005, the Rental Housing Support Program has provided rental assistance to households by subsidizing rental apartments and homes. As a participant in this program, a family with limited economic resources only has to pay 30% of their rent when living in complexes who are partnered with RHSP, with RHSP paying the remainder to the landlord. RHSP paying the difference allows families to live in affordable homes and helps them from experiencing poverty. The increase in funding will ensure the continued success of this program.

In addition the measure also creates the Illinois Rental Housing Support Program Funding Allocation Task Force to study and provide solutions on the matter of the equitable distribution of rental housing support funds throughout the state.

“Working families and those on fixed incomes deserve to have affordable homes,” said Johnson. “I believe this will be an improvement and provide relief for many Illinois households.”

House Bill 3878 passed the Senate Friday and now heads to the governor for consideration.

In 2014-2018, the National Fire Protection Association reports almost three out of every five home fire deaths in the U.S. resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or non-working smoke alarms.

“Fires can happen in the blink of an eye and result in abrupt, tragic loss,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “Proper preparation can be pertinent to survival and fire prevention.”
