Leader Durkin welcomes President Obama's visit to Illinois General Assembly

“It is not common that a sitting President address a state legislature so I warmly welcome President Obama’s visit.

The President’s political career began in the state capitol under the same dome where we work today. My hope is that his remarks on building better politics will echo loudly in the Illinois House chamber where politics, rather than substance, has dominated this legislative session.

I am honored that he will be joining us.”   ~ Jim Durkin, House Republican Leader
