The Congressman representing Illinois' 17th District visited Rockford Wednesday to meet with management and staff at UTC Aerospace Systems.
Congressman Cheri Bustos was recently named to the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in Washington, D.C. She says her position on that committee will benefit aviation and aerospace companies in the Rockford region.
"A part of that subcommittee is aviation, and with Rockford, really a center place for aviation, I am in a position where I can represent the aviation industry out of this region in Washington," she said.
Bustos also serves on the Agriculture Committee. She says another top priority is to get a farm bill passed.
