Illinois Environmental Council Recognizes Rep. Chad Hays for Support of Important Environmental Bills

State Representative Chad Hays (R-Catlin), a vocal supporter of the Illinois businesses that drive the state’s economy, proved through his voting record last year that it is possible to be both pro-business and pro-environment.

The Illinois Environmental Council has listed Hays as having a perfect voting record for 2016 and the Lame Duck Session of January 2017 with regard to 11 bills the Council included on their scorecard. “Over the last year lawmakers had several opportunities to support bills that were supportive of our environment without having a negative impact on Illinois businesses,” said Hays. “I was proud to support these bills and consider it an honor to be recognized by the IEC for my support of their scorecard initiatives.”

Illinois Environmental Council Executive Director Jen Walling praised Hays for his support of the IEC’s 2016 scorecard items, saying, “Representative Chad Hays voted 100% of the time with the environmental community on all pieces of key legislation that promoted clean energy and safe drinking water. We are especially grateful to Rep. Hays for his support of clean energy job growth in Illinois.”
