State Sen. Jim Oberweis (R-Sugar Grove) was appointed to the Senate Republican Leadership team Oct. 1. Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) appointed Oberweis to serve as the Senate Republican Whip.
In this role, Oberweis will work closely with Senate Republican Leadership on important legislation and issues.
“I want to thank Leader Brady for appointing me to this new role,” Oberweis said. “I look forward to returning to Springfield to work on issues with my colleagues that can move Illinois forward, especially in job creation and lessening the tax burden on working families and businesses.”
