Newly inaugurated State Senator Tom Cullerton capped his first week of session in the Illinois Senate by lending his vote to keep alive a state construction program that has invested billions in roads, bridges, and schools and put thousands of people to work.
“I look forward to working together to resolve some of our state’s most controversial topics,” Cullerton said. “We must reach across the aisle to find solutions that will benefit those we represent.”
On Wednesday, Cullerton met again with the Firearms Working Group on to discuss details for upcoming concealed-carry legislation. Guest speakers included Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association; NRA lobbyist Todd Vandermyde; Colleen Daley, executive director of the Illinois Coalition Against Handgun Violence; and Tom Vanden Berk, CEO of Uhlich Children’s Advantage Network and board member with Brady Campaign/Million Mom March.
