ALTON - State Representative Amy Elik (R-Fosterburg) was recently appointed to serve on the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability (COGFA). Elik is one of three House Republican lawmakers appointed to serve on the 12-member commission tasked with estimating Illinois’ annual revenue, among many other important duties concerning the state's finances.

“I promised voters that if elected I would use my professional experience as a CPA to be proactive in working on the state’s dismal fiscal condition,” said Rep. Elik. “I look forward to taking this active role on the commission to help make a positive change for our state. Every year COGFA provides a revenue estimate to the legislature, it’s crucial that lawmakers adhere to the revenue estimate and budget accordingly.”
