State Representative Dwight Kay has been busy preparing for the spring legislative session in Springfield. The Glen Carbon Republican has already filed numerous pieces of legislation ranging from the definition of "catastrophic injury" in the work place to calling for a competence bid for an audit of the pension system, to an audit of claims filed by employees at the Menard Correctional Center.
Kay says there are all pieces of reform legislation, and any real progress will require a change in the way business is done at the Statehouse.
He has also filed legislation addressing campaign donations to judges on the heels of the Barbara Crowder controversy in which she received $30,000 in donations from asbestos lawyers after she set the asbestos docket. She later returned the money.
