House Unveils Bill to Repeal and Replace Obamacare
WASHINGTON – Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) today praised the American Health Care Act (AHCA) – House Republicans’ legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), more commonly known as Obamacare. “This is the relief my constituents have demanded,” said Shimkus, a senior member of the Energy and Commerce Committee that will markup the bill on Wednesday. “The American Health Care Act offers American families more options, lower costs and the flexibility to choose a plan that fits their unique needs, not Washington’s one-size-fits-all mandates.” Gone under the AHCA are the ACA’s middle-class taxes on prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, health-insurance premiums, and medical devices. Gone as well are the individual and employer mandate penalties, which forced millions of Americans into plans they don’t want and can’t afford. “While the vast majority of my constituents will be glad to see this costly, broken law go away,

The grants awarded to the City of Flora, Village of Oblong, Village of Odin, and the Southeastern Illinois Counseling Center total $78,800. “This is federal money well spent,” Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) said. “These grants will help provide necessary community upgrades and public safety resources. I encourage local communities who may not have applied for competitive federal grants before to contact my office if they have any questions about the process.” The City of Flora received $21,100 to refurbish two sirens and replace three sirens with two higher performing sirens. The new software also allows the sirens to be used as a public announcement system in the city. The Village of Oblong was awarded $17,300 to purchase a 2016 AWD Utility Police Inceptor vehicle. The Village
Shimkus Statement on the Passing of Bob Michel
Maryville, Illinois – Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15), the senior Republican in the Illinois congressional delegation, released the following statement on the passing of former Congressman Bob Michel: “Bob Michel will always be remembered on Capitol Hill and in ‘the people’s House’ he loved. An American patriot through and through, Bob’s decorated service in WWII helped shape his views as he went on to represent Illinois in Congress for nearly 40 years. He eschewed the hyper partisan rhetoric that has become all too common today, favoring instead a more collegial, bipartisan approach to policy making. Ever the statesman, Bob’s fair and empowering leadership style is a model we would all do well to imitate. “My thoughts and prayers are with Bob’s many friends and family at this difficult time. I will greatly miss him.” ###

WASHINGTON – Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) released the following statement after making calls to local leaders: “My thoughts and prayers are with all those in my district and across our state who were affected by the storms last night. I also want to extend a huge thank you to all the first responders and emergency personnel who risk their own safety to help and to serve their communities. This afternoon I made calls to local leaders in Wayne and White County, and my staff have spent the day gathering information and assessing the damage. I will continue to follow developments and assist constituents and communities in any way possible.”
