General Updates from Senator Mike Simmons

Dear Neighbor,

The Spring 2024 Legislative Session is coming to a close, but I like to think of this time of year as more of a beginning of session when things really ramp up! I have been working around the clock to get dozens of crucial pieces of legislation passed – from medical debt cancellation and affordable healthcare measures, culturally competent hair care for foster children, to transit safety and housing opportunities – I have been fighting for a budget that supports the needs of our district and state.

In this newsletter, you will find a few key updates on the most paramount bills I am working to pass out of the General Assembly this May after months of input from constituents and negotiations with stakeholders, senate colleagues, and house representatives.

Thank you to every constituent who has reached out either by sending me an email, filling out the “Contact Us” form on my website, or calling my district or Springfield office. Your input on legislation and bill ideas have been invaluable as I work to represent you all.

Looking forward to seeing you in and around the 7th District this summer!
