Davis Speaks at Sangamon County GOP Luncheon
Everything Congress debates in Washington trickles down to affect us here in central Illinois, and some of those issues were addressed at a GOP luncheon in Springfield today.
Rep. Rodney Davis talked about many topics, ranging from Syria to a balanced budget. He also promoted a new bill he's sponsoring. It's called the Opportunity Knocks bill, and it would allow people who get fired to keep their unemployment benefits while they go back to school.
"Families shouldn't have to make a decision between getting the training they need to get a job that's available or keeping their unemployment benefits they work so hard and deserve," Davis said.
Davis also said the majority in the House are determined to repeal Obamacare. He said a balanced budget depends on it.
