Rep. Spain Releases Electronic Legislative Newsletter Highlighting First Year in Office


PEORIA… State Representative Ryan Spain (R-Peoria) announced on Monday the release of his Legislative Session Newsletter, highlighting the major actions taken by the Illinois General Assembly during this year’s regular legislative session.

Rep. Spain also used this newsletter as another opportunity to lead by example, by drastically cutting costs with the release of the newsletter electronically instead of a mailing to area residents.

“While I was aware legislators could use taxpayer funds to publish legislative update newsletters, I discovered that we could save over $10,000 per year in postage costs by releasing this update online-only,” said Spain.

“While the reach may not be as far for this newsletter by releasing it this way, it’s important that all of our elected officials lead by example when it comes to cutting state spending,” said Spain.

Spain’s newsletter is available online at A limited number of copies were printed for those who do not have internet access. If you do not have internet access and would like to be sent a printed copy, please call Rep. Spain’s Peoria District Office at 309-690-7373.

“Providing top-notch constituent service and communicating with those I serve in Springfield is my top priority,” said Spain. “I encourage all Illinoisans to stay informed about how their state government is performing and how we can improve that performance.”
