Corruption and scandals have been attached to politics for too many years. Representative Nekritz is working in Springfield to eliminate government waste and improve efficiency statewide. To combat these issues and restore credibility to state government, Representative Nekritz sponsored legislation that eliminated appointments to state boards and commissions by a governor during the final days of an elected term. She also supported increasing penalties for state workers who perform political work on public time.

Most recently, Representative Nekritz passed legislation to eliminate an under utilized government entity supported by suburban Cook County property tax dollars. The bill dissolved the Suburban Cook County Tuberculosis Sanitarium District and eliminated a property tax levy imposed on suburban homeowners. Representative Nekritz expects the bill will save taxpayers money and improve public health services in Cook County, through transferring tuberculosis care and treatment from the Suburban TB District to the Cook County Bureau of Health.
