Central Illinois Congressman Weighs In On Priorities After Reelection

Central Illinois Republican Congressman Darin LaHood was reelected to a two-year term last Tuesday and is focused on continuing his efforts for the people of central Illinois in Washington, D.C.


Congressman LaHood is pushing for another stimulus bill for the businesses that continue to struggle during this pandemic. He says lawmakers go back next week and it will be a priority during the lame-duck session.



Congressman LaHood says family-owned restaurants and the hospitality industry is hurting in Illinois. He says this is due to the "overzealous" mandates of Gov. JB Pritzker.



Continuing the work of the recent trade agreements with China and the debt is also on Congressman LaHood's radar as he goes back to Washington.



Congressman LaHood indicates he has been visiting with farmers in his district this fall checking in on how the harvest is going for them.
