Bio

A diversified farmer and small business owner of a company that makes fences, Brad E. Halbrook was born in Pana, Illinois and attended Lake Land College. Halbrook is a former member of the Illinois Beef Association Board. Brad and his wife Linda live in Shelbyville and they own and operate a small farming operation. They have two adult children and one grandchild. Rep. Halbrook served previously in the 110th District (Appointed April, 2012; Elected November, 2012, sworn in 2013 and served until January, 2015). Representative Halbrook is both socially and fiscally conservative. He supports lowering taxes at the state and local levels and increasing the number of Illinois jobs. He supports property tax caps and opposes income tax increases. During his previous term in the Illinois House in 2012, he became just the 5th State Legislator to turn down the underfunded and overly generous General Assembly Retirement System pension. He was among a group of legislators that started a trend; as of October 2016, 33 legislators turned down the pension. Because of the number of people and jobs that have left Illinois, Halbrook says that he is committed to reforming worker's compensation laws by eliminating unnecessary regulations. Halbrook opposes abortion, same-sex marriage, and gun control. During his time as a state legislator, he has voted in favor of bills to provide transparency for local governments. He supports redistricting reform and imposing term limits on state
