On Thursday, August 15, Governor Pritzker signed SB 946 into law in honor of Jerseyville resident Jonny Wade, who passed away from cancer at the age of 8. When I learned about Jonny Wade and his family, I wanted to introduce legislation to help fight pediatric cancer. The legislation authorizes universal special license plates and license plate decals to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer treatment and research. I’m proud that this legislation was my first bill to pass out of the Illinois Senate. It is in honor of Jonny and all the kids in our state who have fought and are fighting cancer.
