Sycamore, IL – Displaying a significant level of trust and faith in State Representative Bob Pritchard’s (R-Sycamore) dedication to education in Illinois, House Republican Leader Jim Durkin has named the veteran lawmaker to six of the seven education-related committees for the 99th General Assembly.
“I’m looking forward to these committees- including the two new education committees, and am hopeful that they can achieve some of the goals which we have been striving for in public education during the last few legislative sessions,” said Pritchard. “It is our responsibility to give the next generation the best possible chance for success and that is best achieved through quality education."
Pritchard will serve as the Republican Spokesperson for the Appropriations-Elementary & Secondary Education Committee and the new Elementary & Secondary Education – School Curriculum & Policy Committee, and as a member of the Appropriations – Higher Education, Elementary and Secondary Education – Licensing & Oversight, and Higher Education Committees. In addition to the education committees, Pritchard will also serve in the 99th General Assembly as the Republican Spokesperson for the State Government Administration Committee and as a member of the Juvenile Justice & System-Involved Youth Committee.
