SCHAUMBURG – The Illinois Council of Code Administrators, a statewide organization comprised of municipal and county building department officials, named State Senator Cristina Castro (D-Elgin) the 2019 Legislator of the Year.

“Building safety isn’t something we often think about, but it’s an extremely important aspect of all construction jobs,” Castro said. “I’m honored to have been named Legislator of the Year, and I vow to continue passing legislation that helps keep contractors, construction workers, and folks who use the building safe.”

Castro was the lead sponsor of several pieces of legislation in Springfield aimed at insuring dangerous construction practices are done by trained professionals, as well as a new law that requires all proposed changes to any statewide construction code be posted on a state agency website, making it easier for the public to track.

“The public has the right to stay up to date on the most recent changes to construction safety codes,” Castro said.

Castro received the award at the monthly lunch meeting of the Northwest Building and Code Officials in Schaumburg.
