Legislative Program

The purpose of the county’s legislative program is to pursue new laws and authorities, oppose laws that are believed to have a negative impact on county government and Lake County residents, and pursue funding from the State of Illinois and the federal government.

The Lake County Board’s Revenue Records and Legislative Committee and the County Administrator’s Office establish the state and federal legislative programs, and it is approved by the county board annually.

The County Administrator’s Office collects potential items for the legislative programs from county departments and elected officials’ offices. The Revenue, Records and Legislation Committee reviews the proposed legislative items with top appointed and elected county officials and the county’s lobbyist.

Once approved by the full Lake County Board, staff and professional lobbyists work with legislators in pursuit of favorable state and federal legislation. The County has an agreement with a state lobbying agency to help navigate the legislative process.
