Weekly Update for May 18, 2015

In this week’s update Rep. Davidsmeyer discusses the second Committee of the Whole in 2 weeks, Right to Work and improvements to U.S. Route 67.

Last week the IL House of Representatives held it’s second Committee of the Whole in 2 weeks.  The committee lasted nearly all day and focused on tort reform.  The committee was subject matter only. 
Next, IL House Speaker tried to force an amendment on a bill to make IL a “Right to Work” state.  The amendment was soundly defeated without a single “yes” vote.  
Finally, the IL Department of Transportation announced it’s multi-year program.  This 5 year program includes the Jerseyville by-pass starting at Delhi.  The multi-year program consists of three phases:
  1. Engineering and environmental studies
  2. Land acquisition and utility alignment
  3. Road construction, drainage, signage and lighting
