A Rockford Democrat will help lead the Illinois House of Representatives for the 98th General Assembly.
Representative Chuck Jefferson was elected by the House to serve as an Assistant House Majority Leader. This is the third consecutive time he has been chosen for the role.
"The position of Assistant Majority Leader is a great opportunity because it allows me to bring Rockford's perspective to the forefront of significant discussions," Jefferson said.
Jefferson said his main focuses are finding a way to balance the budget, improving job opportunities, and reducing foreclosures.
