A long-time environmental advocate, Nancy will prioritize environmental protection in the Attorney General’s office. Nancy recognizes that clean air, water and land are critical to the health and safety of Illinois residents.

As Attorney General, Nancy will add a rational voice to the conversation, working towards a more sustainable future in ways that improve our environment and our economy. From clean, renewable energy to modern manufacturing, Illinois has the capacity to lead.
