The health of the community is one of the greatest concerns to Rep. Berrios and that is why she has supported several different bills in regards to health care for all family members. Some of the bills she supports are House Bill 4990 and House Bill 5258.
Keeping in mind the needs of the special needs population in the State ofIllinois, Representative Berrios co-sponsored HB 4990 to help families with children or siblings with special needs that are of age 22 and older. This bill creates a pilot program for adult day services for persons on the Autism Spectrum over the age of 22, which is the age when most other special needs programs are discontinued.
Due to the fact that so many contracts are written so densely and in some cases deceptively; Representative Berrios has introduced HB 5258 Consumer Contract Plain Language. This piece of legislation requires consumer contracts to be written in a simple, clear, understandable, and easily readable manner. She believes that all consumers deserve to know and understand the contracts which they are party to.
