On May 17, Rep. LaPointe joined Governor Pritzker, Leader Delia Ramirez, Senator Robert Peters, and Senator Omar Aquino to speak at the bill signing of the COVID–19 Emergency Housing Act. Rep. LaPointe was proud to co-sponsor this new law, which will help make sure that federal housing dollars that are being sent to Illinois will flow quickly and efficiently to the people who need help the most.
