Legislators visit Pontiac for Issues and Eggs


By Cynthia Grau/WJEZ News

The Pontiac Area Chamber of Commerce held its Issues and Eggs Thursday morning, with guest speakers State Senator Jason Barickman and State Representative Tom Bennett.

The two gave an update on the State of Illinois and Bennett also spoke about what is ahead.

“We have a lot of things going between now and the next 50 to 55 days and we talked about some of the potential directions and some of the potential impacts this election may have. Every election has consequences and this is no different. No different at all,” Bennett said.

Barickman will be a guest on Monday’s early edition of the Community Forum where he will go into more details about the state budget and what lies ahead.
