ADVOCATING FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT
"As a constituent and a devout environmentalist working locally in the clean energy sector I feel incredibly lucky that Ann Williams is my state legislator. As the head of the Green Caucus, she is not only extremely informed on issues that are important to our future, she educates other members of the House and Senate and advocates for legislation that matters. Ansel Adams is quoted as saying 'it's horrifying that we have to fight our government to save the environment.' Ann is working hard to change that sentiment."
-Lisa Albrecht, Constituent and Illinois Solar Energy Association Board of Directors
Ann is a true environmental champion, and has made environmental advocacy one of the cornerstones of her legislative career. Ann currently serves as Chair of the Legislative Green Caucus, a bipartisan group of legislators committed to advancing environmental initiatives in the General Assembly.
- Ann is the Chair of the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Committee, and is a cosponsor of the groundbreaking Clean Jobs Bill (HB2607), an initiative to bring jobs to Illinois in the clean energy sector, save money for consumers on energy costs, and keep our air and water clean.
- Ann understands that environmental initiatives and economic development go hand in hand. Prioritizing energy efficiency brings cost savings to consumers and investment in green industries can create thousands of Illinois jobs.
In our community, Ann joined together with local families to obtain two federal grants through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, to build new green playgrounds at local schools.
