A press release from State Rep. Mike Tryon:
Representative Mike Tryon Named to JCAR and House Executive Committee
CRYSTAL LAKE….. Veteran State Representative and Assistant Republican Leader Mike Tryon (R-Crystal Lake) has been chosen to serve on the influential Joint Commission on Administrative Rules (JCAR).
A bipartisan and bicameral oversight committee, JCAR includes six State Representatives and six Senators, split evenly between the political parties.
The panel is charged with ensuring that the General Assembly is adequately informed of how laws are implemented through agency rulemaking and with facilitating public understanding of rules and regulations.
“It is an incredible honor to have been selected to serve on such an important committee,” said Tryon.
“Because we have rule-making authority, our decisions have a direct impact on the implementation of new laws in Illinois.”
An environmental scientist by profession, Tryon was also selected last week to return as the Republican Spokesperson for the House Environment Committee.
He will also serve as the lead Republican voice on the Juvenile Justice & System Involved Youth Committee.
“Environmental issues are my passion, so I am pleased to be continuing my role as the ranking Republican on the Environment Committee,” Tryon said.
“This is a very active committee and considers a wide variety of bills that affect quality of life issues for Illinoisans.”
Tryon will also be returning as a member of the House Executive Committee for the 99th General Assembly.
The Executive Committee considers bills from all subject areas that are considered to be the largest issues facing the State in any given year.
“I have served on the Executive Committee for the last six years and appreciate having a voice regarding legislation on some of the biggest issues that come before the General Assembly,” Tryon said.
In addition to these committees, Tryon was also chosen to serve on the following other committees for the next two years:
- Revenue & Finance
- Labor & Commerce
- Special Committee on Renewable Energy & Sustainability
