HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

 

The Illinois State House of Representatives is the lower house of the Illinois State Legislature. The house has 118 members, who each represent one district, which results in about 105,248 constituents per representative. Primary responsibilities of a house representative include: developing budget packages, making taxation decisions, passing legislation, allocating spending, and redistricting in collaboration with other house members and the state senate. Important issues discussed in the Illinois senate recently include, a potential income tax increase, a statewide minimum wage, and federal healthcare funding. Additionally, the house has the exclusive authority to impeach state officials, who will then be tried by the senate. A house member serves a two-year term, with no limits on the number of terms served.
