Senator Dick Durbin says President Trump's funding for a border wall will hurt military investment in Illinois. 

 

Durbin says three Illinois projects are on a Department of Defense list of $12.9 billion worth of military construction projects that could be sacrificed to pay for a border wall. Durbin believes one cut wouldn't play well in Peoria...

 

 

Another cut or delayed construction effort would be a planned $41 million communications facility expansion at Scott Air Force Base in the Metro-East. A $5 million automated record fire range for the Illinois Army National Guard in Marseilles could also be affected.
