Women's Citizen Advisory Committee
Date:09/07/2017Time:12:00 - 1:00
Location: 1919 Rte 83 Suite 1 Round Lake Beach
ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – In order to better advocate for area women, state Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is inviting local women to join his Women’s Issues Citizens’ Advisory Committee, which will meet on Thursday, Sept. 7 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. at his constituent services office located at 1919 IL Rte. 83 in Round Lake Beach.
“Common-sense measures to protect women’s’ access to health care and ensure equal pay have been under attack by extreme right-wing politicians,” Yingling said. “Meeting with residents impacted by these decisions at the state and federal level help me better understand their concerns and how best to advocate for them in our Capitol.”
Recently, Yingling helped to pass a new law that removes statute of limitations for sexual crimes against children, giving law enforcement more time to prosecute these crimes, and legislation expanding insurance coverage for breast cancer screenings for women at a higher risk of developing difficult-to-detect tumors.
Yingling is inviting anyone who has ideas for legislation or who would like to receive an update about what is happening in Springfield to join this committee. All meetings are free and open to all residents of the 62nd District.
“I continue to enlist the feedback of the people I serve by going door to door and hosting events,” Yingling continued. “My advisory committees enable me to tackle issue specific matters and I encourage people to contact my office if they are interested in serving on one of my committees.”
For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Yingling’s full-time constituent service office at 847-231-6262 or email him at RepSamYingling@gmail.com

Emergency Town Hall with State Rep. Sam Yingling
Date:06/20/2017Time:1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Location: Round Lake Area Park District’s Community Center 814 Hart Rd
As your state representative, I am committed to serving and advocating for the senior citizens in our community. It is important that services and programs for older people encourage independence, dignity and quality of life.

Illinois’ budget crisis has created a dire situation for our older neighbors. Because Governor Rauner has failed to do his job and propose a responsible budget, 22,000 seniors have already lost access to Meals on Wheels and another 100,000 risk losing critical care that helps them remain in their homes. Seniors in our area should not be forced to pay for Springfield’s dysfunction. That’s why I voted to pass lifeline funding for critical services for local seniors, including Meals on Wheels, and potentially lifesaving health care.

Now, under dangerous new administrative rules issued by Governor Rauner’s Department on Aging, care will be stripped from 40,000 elderly residents, all while reducing the overall quality of care for seniors. Not only would the Department’s plan end care for tens of thousands of seniors, it would reduce the quality of care for even more, placing elderly residents who rely on in-home care through the Community Care Program in a new and untested program called the Community Reinvestment Program (CRP). Senior advocates including AARP and the Illinois Association of Community Care Program Homecare Providers have expressed concern that CRP lacks the standards and requirements that are critical to seniors’ health and security, while creating costly new layers of government bureaucracy.

With this in mind, I would like to invite you to attend an Emergency Town Hall that I am hosting with AARP at the Round Lake Area Park District’s Community Center located at 814 Hart Road in Round Lake on Tuesday, June 20 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM to learn about the current dangerous cuts being proposed by Governor Rauner.

I hope you are able to attend. If you ever have any questions about my legislation or events or need assistance, please feel free to contact my office anytime at RepSamYingling@gmail.com or 847-231-6262.

Business Advisory Committee
Date:10/03/2017Time:10:00 am - 11:30 am
Location: 814 Hart Road, Round Lake
As a small business owner myself and the son of restaurant owners, I know small businesses are essential to creating jobs and are the main economic driver in our communities. I am committed to working with local business owners to help the small businesses in our community succeed and thrive.

I am focused on making Illinois more business friendly to bring more job creators to Lake County which is why I opposed raising the income tax rate. I also support an economic plan that incentivizes small to medium sized companies to hire locally, and am working to close tax loopholes exploited by large corporations that send jobs out of state. There is much work that remains which is why I write to invite you to my upcoming Small Business Round Table event. Your feedback is important and I hope you can make it!

My event will be held Tuesday, October 3rd from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the Round Lake Area Park District’s East Multi-Purpose Room located at 814 Hart Rd., in Round Lake.

To RSVP, for more information or if I can ever assist you, please contact me at 847-231-6262 or RepSamYingling@gmail.com.

Education Advisory Committee
Date:10/10/2017Time:10:00 am - 11:30 am
Location: Graylake Public Library
I recently voted to pass legislation which aims to fix our state’s broken education funding formula and invests $6.6 million more in additional state funding in the schools that I represent, while ensuring that no school in Lake County loses vital state funding. This bill also paves the way for meaningful property tax relief.

Please join my Education Citizens’ Advisory Committee to learn more about this legislation and share your ideas on how the state can improve the quality of education and better serve local schools. My nextadvisory committee meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 10th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and will be held at the Grayslake Public Library’s meeting rooms AB&C. The library is located at 100 Library Ln. in Grayslake.

My priority as your State Representative is to be accessible to you. You can RSVP for my Education Citizens’ Advisory Committee by calling my office at 847-231-6262 or emailing me at repsamyingling@gmail.com.

If you are unable to attend, I would still like to hear from you. If you ever have any questions about my legislation or events, or would like to be notified of future meetings of this advisory committee, please feel free to contact my office anytime.
