A press release from State Rep. Dave McSweeney:
McSweeney Announces Key Committee Assignment
Barrington Hills – State Representative David McSweeney (R-Barrington Hills) has been appointed a Republican member of the Revenue and Finance Committee in the Illinois House of Representatives.
The Revenue and Finance Committee considers most legislation dealing with tax and significant financial issues. This important committee assignment recognizes McSweeney’s strong business background, experience in finance and familiarity with revenue issues.
“I will work hard for lower taxes, less spending and real reform,” said McSweeney. “I anticipate important pieces of legislation to come before this Committee.”
Representative McSweeney will also serve on the

- Personnel and Pensions Committee. McSweeney has consistently called for major pension reform as a top priority.
I believe it is a deliberate strategy of House Speaker Mike Madigan to keep members busy running around from committee meeting to committee meeting to limit the ability of members to think and confer with colleagues.
And, of course, that’s only a ancillary benefit to being able to pay most of his members extra money for being committee chairmen.
Committee Spokesmen also get extra pay.
In addition, McSweeney will serve on the
- State Government Administration
- Appropriations – Elementary and Secondary Education
- Tollway Oversight Committees
