Stars, Stripes, and Statutes!

Dear Friend,

As we approach the holiday weekend, I want to wish you a Happy 4th of July as we celebrate America’s independence! I hope you and your family are able to partake in the some of the many parades, festivals, and fireworks happening in our area. In fact, I will be at the Hawthorn Woods fireworks tonight at the Hawthorn Woods Community Park. Looking forward to seeing many of you there and enjoying a great show!

I also wanted to share with you that one of my bipartisan bills was signed into law this past Monday. SB2751 will waive the permitting fees for disabled veterans looking to do modifications to their homes. This will help to alleviate the burden on those who have given so much of themselves in service to our country.

Additionally, I want to invite you to a free Shred/Recycling Event I am hosting in the parking lot of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Lake Zurich next week Saturday, July 13th from 8:30AM-11:30AM. This is a great opportunity to get rid of any unwanted documents/paper, old electronics, bicycles, glasses, etc. You can find more information below:

It has been great being back in the district this summer and I look forward to seeing you at some of my upcoming events. If I you have any questions or comments, please reach out here. As always, your voices and feedback guide my work to represent you.  

Faithfully yours,

Dan McConchie
Illinois State Senator, 26th District

Sen. McConchie and Rep. Kifowit Sponsored Bipartisan Legislation to Assist Disabled Veterans

A significant step toward supporting Illinois’ disabled veterans was taken on July 1st as legislation was signed into law to alleviate some of the financial burdens placed on the state’s disabled veterans community. This new law, sponsored by State Senator Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) and Representative Stephanie A. Kifowit (D-Aurora), waives permit fees for disabled veterans who need to modify their homes for accessibility.

Prior to this law, disabled veterans returning from service and needing to adapt their homes were required to pay permit fees to their local government in addition to covering the renovation costs themselves. This added financial strain often made essential home modifications even more challenging.

“Disabled veterans already face significant challenges when it comes to home renovations,” stated Sen. Dan McConchie, a Veteran of the U.S. Army National Guard, who sponsored SB 2751 in the Senate. “This legislation ensures they are not burdened with extra costs from city permit fees. Veterans have sacrificed so much for us, and waiving these fees is a small way to give back.”  Public Act 103-0621, filed as Senate Bill 2751, specifically addresses the issue by waiving permit fees for disabled veterans making necessary home modifications.
