State Rep. Deanne Mazzochi appointed to six key committees

State Representative Deanne Mazzochi (R-Elmhurst) today announced that she has received her committee appointments for the 101st General Assembly:

“I am very pleased to be able to serve the people of Illinois – and in the 47th district – on these committees.  Investing in capital projects is vital to the economic growth and development in Illinois. The Labor & Commerce and Energy & Environment committees will take on issues crucial to innovation,” said Mazzochi. “The 47th district has made the importance of public safety clear; they want to secure our schools and fund first responders. I am particularly excited about my appointment to the Prescription Drug Affordability Committee. I have dedicated my private sector career to finding ways to make medications more affordable by bringing generics to market, increasing competition in marketplace, and increasing the availability of healthcare to all.”

The Illinois House Republican Caucus will have a strong suburban female voice representing them in Mazzochi’s six appointed committees. The appointments include two appropriations committees and four substantive committees:

  • Appropriations: Capital
  • Appropriations: Public Safety
  • Energy & Environment
  • Judiciary: Civil
  • Labor & Commerce
  • Prescription Drug Affordability

Rep. Mazzochi’s experience as a litigator will also be an important asset to the Judiciary: Civil Committee. The Governor wants to pass complex minimum wage hikes in his first 100 days, and her business experience will prove to be a valuable voice on the labor and commerce committee.
