Sen. Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro)

As the 103rd General Assembly begins its work in Springfield, State Senator Terri Bryant of Murphysboro has been named the Assistant Republican Leader for the Illinois Senate Republican Caucus.

She says one of her jobs will be to try to half what she calls "super liberal" legislation.

"As my mentor and friend, (former) Senator Dave Luechtefeld once said when I asked him what was his greatest piece of legislation, he said 'I can't be sure that I could put my seal on anything I did on legislation while I was here, but I stopped a lot of really bad stuff.' So, I anticipate us fighting to stop a lot of really bad stuff."

Bryant has served in the Illinois Senate since 2021 after previously serving in the Illinois House of Representatives.
