Illinois Committee Assignments, 2013
Appropriations-Human Services
Business Growth & Incentives
Consumer Protection
Elementary & Secondary Education


In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Roth's committee assignments were not recorded on the Assembly's website.[2]


Campaign themes


Roth's campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

  • Pensions
Excerpt: "The State manages 5 pension systems, Judge’s, state employee’s, teacher’s, State Universities, and the General Assembly retirement system. The last one I just mentioned should be completely eliminated; there is no reason why a legislator should be receiving a pension, this is not a career it’s civil service and that is exactly why I turned down the lucrative General Assembly pension."
  • Medicaid Reform
  • Balancing the Budget
  • The Economy and Jobs
  • Education

The Illinois Opportunity Project, "an independent research and public policy enterprise that promotes legislative solutions in advance of free markets and free minds," annually releases its Legislative Vote Card, grading all members in both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly on the basis of their support of "pro-growth economic policies that increase personal freedom and reign in expansive government."[7][8]


Roth received a score of 75.00 out of 100 in 2012 for a grade of B- according to the IOP’s grading scale. Her score was tied for the 12th highest among all 120 members of the Illinois House of Representatives included in the Vote Card.[8]
