Hirschauer to Prioritize Gun Violence Prevention, Working Families in Second Term

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — After taking the oath of office for the 103rd General Assembly, state Rep. Maura Hirschauer, D-Batavia, issued the following statement: “I am incredibly thankful that my neighbors have once again entrusted me to represent their needs and interests in Springfield.

This is a responsibility that I do not take lightly, and I promise to continue serving with the honor and integrity our community deserves.

“As your state representative, my highest priority is to support working families and children across Illinois. This includes continuing our efforts to further reduce gun violence, strengthen our public education system, increase access to affordable health care, and improve affordability for working families. Though we have made tremendous progress on many of these fronts, our fight is far from over. I am confident that with continued collaboration and compromise among legislators on both sides of the aisle, Illinois’ future is as bright as ever.”

Rep. Hirschauer Highlights Back to School Sales Tax Holiday on School Supplies

WEST CHICAGO, Ill. — State Rep. Maura Hirschauer, D-Batavia, is highlighting the upcoming back to school sales tax holiday on school supplies and certain school-related items that will take place August 5-14. During that period, sales tax for school supplies and qualifying clothing and footwear will be cut.

“As a parent, I know back to school shopping can be expensive, especially as families deal with the impact of inflation,” Hirschauer said. “This sales tax holiday will save families money during these challenging times so that their children are adequately prepared for the upcoming school year.”

Hirschauer passed the sales tax holiday as a part of the Illinois Family Relief Plan, which also includes savings on gas and groceries. Qualifying items include school supplies, such as notebooks, backpacks, calculators, crayons, pencils and more. Footwear and clothing items that retail for less than $125 per item qualify for the sales tax holiday as well.

“When children have the school supplies they need, they can fully focus on participating in class and get the most out of their academic experience,” said Hirschauer. “I urge families to plan ahead and take advantage of the savings during the sales tax holiday this August to support their students this school year.”
