Hultgren helps form new science caucus

WASHINGTON – An Illinois congressman is helping form a new political caucus to encourage federal investment in research and national laboratories.

U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren will join three other members of congress as co-chairmen of the House Science and National Labs Caucus.

Hultgren’s district includes parts of McHenry County and the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia.

The Winfield Republican said in a statement Friday the reach of national laboratories can be seen in all sectors of the economy.
