JacobsWelcome2014Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting my legislative website.  It is my honor to serve the citizens of the 36th Senate District in the Illinois General Assembly.  On this website, you can learn a little bit about me, my record in the General Assembly, and the services I can provide you.

Right now, my top priorities are bringing more jobs to to our area, increasing economic development in the region, finding a responsible budget solution, and putting an end to business as usual in Springfield.  I am most proud of the projects that have come to the 36th District including the expansions of Western Illinois University, the Northeast Sports Complex in East Moline, and the expansion of Douglas Park in the City of Rock Island.

I always welcome feedback from my constituents, so if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact me.

JacobsBudget2014Facility closures may again become a reality if the state budget holes are not plugged, according to the proposal given by Governor Quinn. Senator Mike Jacobs (D – Moline) is working to make sure those closures do not become reality.

"After what we heard in committee last week, I was hoping that there would have been different information from the Governor," said Jacobs. "We as the officials elected to represent the people of Illinois have a duty to protect people from these monumental cuts and closures.”


JacobsApprop032114Senator Mike Jacobs (D-Moline), a member of the Senate Appropriations II Committee, heard testimony from state agencies concerning cuts to much needed programs and facilities across the state. 

"The scenario I heard about today would mean cuts across the board," said Jacobs. "Everything from additional prison closures, to cutting the jobs home health care workers and closing every forensics lab in the state. We are facing a scenario that will affect each and every one of us."
