State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D – Chicago Heights) showed her support for several construction projects in the Southland, including the Illiana Expressway and South Suburban Airport in the 40th District, in a recent letter penned to Governor Rauner.
The letter, sent from Congresswoman Robin Kelly and signed by more than thirty suburban mayors and state and local officials, lays out the list of infrastructure and economic development projects currently being planned for the Southland and their economic impact on the region.
“We write to reiterate our strong, bipartisan support for these nearly shovel-ready projects,” the letter lays out. “Each of these would be self-financed yet ultimately generate a great amount of opportunities and hundreds of millions of dollars in new tax revenues for the state of Illinois.”
