Senator Gloiak HiltonSPRINGFIELD – Illinois residents will now be given clear notice on contracts that automatically renew, thanks to a law sponsored by State Senator Suzy Glowiak Hilton.

“Automatic renewal contracts can be confusing, and businesses take advantage of this all the time,” said Glowiak Hilton (D-Western Springs “This new law will ensure residents give clear consent when entering into a contract so they are not charged for services they do not need or want.”

Glowiak Hilton’s measure requires clear and conspicuous disclosure of a contract’s automatic renewal terms, including that the contract will continue until the consumer cancels, the deadline to cancel before being charged for the renewal, the amount of recurring charges, and the length of the renewal terms. For contracts lasting twelve months or more and that automatically renew for more than one month, customers must receive notice at least 30 days before the renewal.

“This law will prevent businesses from robbing residents,” said Glowiak Hilton. “No business in Illinois should be allowed to manipulate someone by not providing the right information about what they are selling to them.”

Senate Bill 328 was signed into law Friday and goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2024.

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Suzy Glowiak Hilton passed a measure to require vital records to indicate whether a service-related injury contributed to a veteran’s death.

“By not listing contributing factors behind a veteran’s death, we are potentially leaving out important information for their families,” said Glowiak Hilton (D – Western Springs). “Including these factors will ensure families receive the correct compensation after the death of their loved ones.”

House Bill 2856 would require vital records to list contributing factors behind a veteran’s death. This requirement would ensure survivor benefits and other rights are addressed if the death was caused by a service-related injury.

“During such a traumatic time, we need to ensure we are taking the right steps to give families the information they need.” said Glowiak Hilton. “After the large sacrifice our veterans have made for our state and nation, the least we can do is make sure their deaths are accurately reported.”

House Bill 2856 passed the Senate Wednesday.

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Suzy Glowiak Hilton is spearheading a measure to make Native American history a requirement for all public elementary and high school students.

“Native American history is American history, and it has been overlooked for far too long,” said Glowiak Hilton (D – Western Springs). “Our history classes should be more representative of our nation’s origins.”

House Bill 1633 would require public schools to make Native American history part of curriculum. Teachings would include the study of the genocide of and discrimination against Native Americans, as well as tribal sovereignty, treaties made between tribal nations and the United States, and the circumstances around forced Native American relocation.

Social studies courses pertaining to American history or government would be required to include a unit of instruction studying the events of the Native American experience and Native American history within the Midwest and Illinois.

Glowiak Hilton has championed other bills in support of Native American heritage this year. Senate Bill 1446 would ensure schools would allow articles of clothing that have cultural of religious significance for its students. This issue was brought to Glowiak Hilton’s attention when a student was denied the ability to walk the stage of his graduation ceremony for wearing Native American regalia on his graduation cap. It passed the Senate in March, and is now in the House for further consideration.

“We need an educated populace that has a nuanced understanding of United States’ history,” said Glowiak Hilton. “We should be encouraging an educated analysis of our past to create a better future.”

House Bill 1633 passed the Senate Wednesday.
