Batinick Named Spokesperson for Personnel and Pensions

SPRINGFIELD—State Representative Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield) announced his committee assignments for the 101st General Assembly, where he will join colleagues in the House to vet legislation for the next two years.

Notably, the Representative will serve as the Republican Spokesperson for the Personnel and Pensions Committee. Rep. Batinick has served on this committee in prior General Assemblies, but this is the first time he will serve as the caucus’ spokesperson.

“With our State’s pension crisis continually being one of our biggest burdens, I am ready to take the lead as caucus spokesperson and actively work toward viable bipartisan solutions,” said Batinick. “This is a crucial committee tasked with important work, as it involves major policy that the future of our State depends on.”

In addition to Personnel and Pensions, Representative Batinick was appointed to the following committees: Insurance, Healthcare License, and International Trade and Commerce.

Committees will meet for the first time this week, as the legislative session convenes in the House on February 5th.
