Springfield, IL – Yesterday, JB Pritzker signed Personal PAC’s gubernatorial candidate pledge to protect HB 40 and held a meet and greet with advocates and HB 40 sponsor Sen. Heather Steans. They discussed the importance of protecting the historic bill and called on Bruce Rauner to commit to defending Illinois women.
“I’ve fought for women’s rights my whole life and I proudly stood with advocates to demand Bruce Rauner sign HB 40 into law,” said JB Pritzker. “When it comes to the leadership of our state, there is no room for fair weather allies like Bruce Rauner who assess which way the political winds are blowing before deciding whether or not women deserve equality. It is time for a relentless advocate for a woman’s right to choose in Springfield. I proudly sign this pledge and I look forward to standing with Personal PAC to defend the progress we’ve made and ensured women’s equality in every corner of our state.”
