Today Representative Sosnowski and the Attorney General's office hosted seminars at the Heritage Woods residences in Belvidere and Rockford.

The seminars provided insightful information on fraud alerts, common scams and how to protect your personal information if you believe that you are a victim of consumer fraud or identity theft.

"Arming yourself with knowledge is the best protection from consumer fraud,” stated Representative Joe Sosnowski. “Many of us have received scam calls or mailers from impostors and it is important to familiarize ourselves with how to appropriately handle these potentially dangerous situations.”
Dear Friends,

Many Illinois K-12 schools will not open this fall unless we do something to get them the funding they need. There is a stopgap bill that could be brought to a vote which would provide emergency funding to schools to ensure that they open on-time. Please sign my petition to draw attention to House Bill 6583 and get our schools the money they need to open their doors in the fall.

Please follow this link and show your support for Illinois K-12 schools.
