Richard Sewell's nomination to position with the Health Facilities and Services Review Board withdrawn


By Metric Media News Service | Dec 4, 2019


Richard Sewell's nomination to be member of the Health Facilities and Services Review Board was withdrawn on Nov. 26, according to the official Illinois General Assembly website.

According to Illinois Senate rules, any nomination that the Senate evaluates must be submitted to the Senate by an Appointment Message from the legally-designated appointing authority for the position in question. The Appointment Message is then by default controlled by the Chairperson of the Executive Appointments Committee as the primary and exclusive sponsor, and then it is assigned to the Executives Appointments Committee.

At any time, the appointing officer or appointing authority can withdraw an appointment in writing, terminating the legal effect of the initial Appointment Message. This is what happened to Sewell on Nov. 26 when the appointee's nomination was withdrawn.

Sen. (D-1) had been sponsoring Sewell's nomination.

Sewell had been nominated to be a member of the Illinois State Board of Investment on Oct. 28.
