Tryon to fill in for Sandack as co-chair on JCAR



UrlSPRINGFIELD – State Representative Mike Tryon (R-Crystal Lake) isn't running for re-election this fall, but he will finish his final term in the Illinois General Assembly serving as the Republican Spokesperson and Co-Chair of the State’s Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR).

Tryon was appointed to the key role by House Republican Leader Jim Durkin and is replacing former JCAR Co-Chair Ron Sandack, who resigned from the General Assembly two weeks ago.

“JCAR is a very important committee and I have every confidence that Mike will do a great job watching out for the taxpayers of Illinois,” said Durkin. Prior to being elevated to the position of Co-Chair, Tryon was an appointed member of the committee.

JCAR is a bi-partisan, bi-cameral legislative oversight committee that oversees the rule-making process by state agencies, making sure proposed rules abide by the original intent of lawmakers. The commission is composed of 12 legislators who are appointed by the legislative leaders of the House and Senate, split equally between Republicans and Democrats. It is co-chaired by one member from each political party.

“It is quite an honor to be chosen by Leader Durkin for this important committee,” said Tryon, who is retiring in January after serving 12 years in the House of Representatives. “As legislation is approved and agencies create rules for implementation of new laws, our job as a non-partisan group is to ensure that the rules reflect the true intent of the law as it was discussed in the House and Senate and signed by the Governor.”

JCAR meets regularly in Springfield from January through May and in Chicago during the summer and fall months.
