SPRINGFIELD – Today, State Senator Antonio “Tony” Munoz (D-Chicago) voted to override the governor’s veto of Senate Bill 2043, legislation that would release Monetary Award Program funding to universities throughout the state. Munoz reacted to the vote with the following statement.
“MAP grants are a vital tool to help low income students pay for college. It’s unconscionable that anyone would play politics with the education of our college students. I am proud to vote to restore MAP grant funding and stand with the students of my community.”
As we welcome in the year of the monkey, State Senator Tony Munoz is wishing everyone a happy Chinese New Year.Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated on the first day of the year of the Chinese calendar. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese calendar is lunisolar, therefore, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the "Lunar New Year".
在猴年即将到来的时刻，芝加哥地区州议员Tony Munoz先生祝愿大家新年快乐。 春节是中国最重要的传统节日。为庆祝新一年的开始，传统的庆祝活动将从农历最后一天的“除夕”一直延续到新年的1月15号“元宵节”，这是中国农历中最长的节日。中国的农历是根据月亮的变化而制定的，因此中国新年通常也被称作“农历新年”。
State Senator Tony Munoz (D-Chicago) was honored for his efforts to pass biosimilar substitution legislation in Illinois.
Senate Bill 455 was signed into law this summer. The legislation establishes clear authority and unambiguous procedures for the substitution of interchangeable biological products that have been approved as interchangeable by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Patients will gain access to new discoveries and anticipated cost savings that the interchangeable biological products will offer.
“I would like to thank iBIO for recognizing me with this award,” Munoz said. “I’m humbled to be a part of legislation that upgrades Illinois’ health care system, leading to cost savings and better patient outcomes. I’m excited to see the results from this measure and look forward to supporting iBIO in the future.”
