01082019CM0166SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Ram Villivalam issued the following statement regarding Gov. JB Pritzker’s executive order calling for the enforcement of House Bill 40.

“I applaud Gov. Pritzker’s continued support of a woman’s right to choose,” Villivalam (D-Chicago) said. “We need to ensure legislation is actually working once it is signed, and this executive order will do just that. I look forward to working with Gov. Pritzker and members of the Illinois General Assembly in taking the next steps to further protect and advance women's rights.”
