"I want to thank my colleague, State Sen. Tom Cullerton from Dupage County, for coming out to the Quad Cities," Anderson said. "We went on a John Deere Harvester Works tour, Rock Island Arsenal Tour, and a Rock River Arms tour. While lawmakers represent only the people in their district, it’s important we travel to other parts of the state to learn about those areas, their industries, and have good discussions with the people who live in those districts and their representatives. Understanding each other and knowing the needs of other Senate districts only helps when lawmakers are crafting legislation and budgets in Springfield. I look forward to visiting other parts of the state as well. Thanks Sen. Tom Cullerton for coming!"
