To mark National Teen Road Safety Week State Representative Mike Marron today recognized the Danville High School Future Problem Solvers for their continued work to promote safe driving by young adults throughout our area. At a special ceremony at Danville High School, Representative Marron presented the group and their sponsor with a special House of Representatives Certificate of Recognition along with his thanks and praise.

“Roadway accidents claim more teen lives than any other cause; but that doesn’t have to be the case,” said Representative Marron (R-Danville). “Lives can be saved through increased awareness and safety initiatives geared to young drivers, and I am very proud of the Danville High School Future Problem Solvers for tackling this issue with their ‘Project Ignition’ safety program.”

Representative Mile Marron has signed-on to sponsor his first pieces of legislation, all of which work together to protect taxpayers.

Representative Marron is co-sponsoring a pair of bills to reform the state budget process to help ensure taxpayers and local agencies that serve them will be protected and respected each year. House Bill 1815 requires the General Assembly to begin the budget process each year by adopting a realistic revenue estimate.

“When working out your family’s budget you start with figuring out how much money you have to spend and then you plan how to spend it. That’s how you live within your means. Those in control of the General Assembly, however, do just the opposite…they begin with how much they want to spend then plan which taxes and fees they will raise to pay for it. That’s why we’re in the financial mess we’re in,” Rep. Marron said. “We need to put common sense back into the process, beginning with the adoption of a realistic revenue estimate every spring.”

Fresh off his recent swearing-in, new 104th District State Representative Mike Marron has announced a series of traveling office hours that he is referring to a “listening tour”.

 “Meeting my constituents in their communities is the best way I can think of to live up to my promise to be open and accessible to the citizens of the 104th district,” Marron said. “This listening tour will give me a great deal of street-level perspective from the hardworking men and women of east central Illinois. I have lived here all of my life, but as a new State Representative, I feel a responsibility to meet the folks I represent where they live, and to represent the best interests of everyone.”

Rep. Marron and a member of his staff will be available in several communities throughout the 104th district in the coming months.
