Leader McCombie and her leadership team met with several officials from Ireland including Minister Heather Humphries, Consul General Kevin Byrne, Vice Consul Padraig Manning, Special Advisor Pauric McPhillips, and Staffer Eamonn McCormack.

McCombie and Reps. Dave Severin and Bill Hauter held a press conference in the Capitol to discuss the ongoing issues with a state agency: IDFPR. Fixes are needed to help improve this agency which has failed to adequately and efficiently help Illinois residents. House Republicans presented a legislative package to provide several solutions.
