County's state rep gets committee assignments
State Rep. Brad Halbrook (R-Charleston) was appointed to five committees in the Illinois House of Representatives, including those dealing with agriculture, higher education and tourism.

"I look forward to working in committee to represent the interests of our communities in east central Illinois," Halbrook said. "Agriculture is the engine of our economy, higher education is such an important part of our region with Eastern, Lake Land and Lincoln Trail, and of course the many tourist sites in our area."

The 98th General Assembly committee assignments were formalized this week, and Halbrook was named to the House committees on Agriculture, Appropriations-Higher Education, Counties and Townships, Environment, and Tourism.

"I hope to be a strong voice for east-central Illinois on these important committees," Halbrook added, "and I know that the knowledge and experiences of the farmers, educators, local officials and everyday citizens of the 110th district will be a valuable resource to me in doing so."

The General Assembly reconvenes on Tuesday and Governor Quinn will offer his State of the State address on Wednesday.
