castro execELGIN – The Senate Executive Committee for the 102nd General Assembly will have new leadership, as State Senator Cristina Castro (D-Elgin) was announced as its Chair.

“I am honored to have been selected to Chair the Executive Committee, and I am excited to get to work solving some our state’s most pressing issues,” Castro said. “Some of the most influential and impactful bills come through that Committee, and the debate they inspire is always informative and often persuasive. It will be a challenging role, but it’s one that I know I can handle and I’m looking forward to seeing what proposals my colleagues bring to the table.”

The Senate Executive Committee typically handles some of the more complex pieces of legislation that hit the Senate. The landmark cannabis legalization package went through the Executive Committee, as did every pillar of the Black Caucus agenda during the closing days of the 101st General Assembly.

“I want to thank President Harmon for the opportunity to Chair such an important committee, and I am confident that our work will help secure a brighter future for everyone in Illinois,” Castro said.

Castro has previously served as Chair of the Revenue Committee and the Veterans Affairs Committee.
