* Speaker Madigan letter to the House Clerk…
Dear Mr. Clerk:
Pursuant to House Rule 13.5, today I am establishing the House Firearm Public Awareness Task Force, which will review the issue of gun violence and make recommendations designed to reduce violence. The number of majority and minority appointments for the task force is indicated below. These majority appointments are effective immediately.
Each caucus will be allowed to appoint ten members. It’s not as big as the property tax task force, but it ain’t small, either.
* Here are the Democrats…
Representative La Shawn K. Ford, Chair
Representative Monica Bristow
Representative Sonya M. Harper
Representative Barbara Hernandez
Representative Yehiel Kalish
Representative Stephanie A. Kifowit
Representative Theresa Mah
Representative Martin J. Moylan
Representative Aaron M. Ortiz
Representative Kathleen Willis
Rep. Ford said he requested the task force be created.
* From the House Republicans…
We look forward to appointing members to this task force and working in a bipartisan manner to address this issue.
