“When it comes to Illinois, Democrats and Republicans in Congress have always come together to tackle the toughest issues.  I am confident that tradition will continue next year in the new Congress, which will see the introduction of two new member of the Illinois Delegation.  I look forward to working with them and Governor-elect Rauner who joined us for a meeting this afternoon.  We had a good discussion about the issues facing Illinois including jobs, infrastructure and state budget challenges.”
