St. Rep. Welter on priorities: pandemic relief, finances

Morris Republican St. Rep. David Welter has priorities he hopes the General Assembly focuses on in the new session. He says the state needs pandemic relief. And he says the financial problems aren’t going away.

The Illinois House selected a new speaker Wednesday. Emanuel Chris Welch, a Democrat, says he wants to work with the other side of the aisle to make Illinois better. Welter says he hopes it’s not just something Welch is saying.
