I am extremely disappointed that Senate Democrats are holding up my bill to improve the veterans claims process to seemingly protect the VA from greater transparency.

My statement on the news that Rivian Automotive is in talks to purchase the closed Mitsubishi plant in Normal: "This is great news for the Bloomington-Normal community. We have always known that this community is home to some of the most-talented, driven workers right here in Central Illinois and this is reflected by Rivian's desire to invest and create jobs here. It's also because of the diligent efforts led by the Bloomington-Normal Economic Development Council, Town of Normal and Mayor Koos, the McLean County Board, and the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity to recruit new employers to the area."
