Rep. Jerry Long Receives Committee Assignments

Streator, IL… State Rep. Jerry Long (R-Streator) announced on Friday that he has received committee appointments to seven committees as the 100th General Assembly commences.

Committee appointments for the newly elected Representative include Transportation: Roads and Bridges, Community College Access and Affordability, Business Incentives for Local Communities, Aging, and Economic Opportunity, as well as Special Committees on Police & First Responders, and Public Safety. These roles fit well with Rep. Long’s professional background as both a Teamster and small business owner.  

“I’m very pleased with my assignments as they allow me to lend my expertise on matters that truly affect the 76th District” said Long.  “My goal is to get to work spurring economic growth in our area as the district’s location makes us a major transportation hub for the state. There is no reason we can’t be an economic force. I’m also excited to tackle issues pertaining to community college affordability. I’m a strong supporter of the trades, so I look forward to helping IVCC continue to thrive as the lone, higher education provider in our district.”
