07232018 Manar Leg of Yr SWCD 350SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Andy Manar received the 2018 legislator of the year award from the Association of Illinois Soil and Water Conservation Districts.

The award was presented during the organization’s annual meeting in Springfield Monday, July 23.

“This recognition is an honor. Agriculture is our state’s No. 1 industry, and it’s impossible to put a price tag on the work of soil and water conservation districts – especially in downstate Illinois. I am proud to advocate on their behalf in Springfield,” said Manar, a Bunker Hill Democrat.

Manar is chairman of one of the Senate’s two appropriations committees and is one of the General Assembly’s budget negotiators. He also sits on the Senate’s Agriculture, Labor and Education committees.
