State Rep. Tom Weber, R-Lake Villa, has been tapped by House Republican Leader Jim Durkin for several key committee assignments for the 101st General Assembly.

He will serve on the Appropriations-Human Services; Consumer Protection; Counties and Townships; Judiciary-Civil; Labor and Commerce; and Transportation: Regulation, Roads and Bridges committees.

“I’m excited to bring my experiences to these committees, whether from my time on the Lake County Board or my background as a carpenter and electrician who has built a small business,” Weber said. “Our state needs to improve its economic outlook and relieve the tax burden that is driving families and job creators out of Illinois, and I look forward to utilizing my unique background to promote that on these committees.”

Given the push for a major infrastructure bill this year and debate over the state minimum wage, Weber’s committee assignments ensure that he is well-situated to make sure the voice of residents in Lake and McHenry counties are heard.

The 64th House District is split between Lake and McHenry counties, from Crystal Lake in the south and stretching northeast to cover the communities throughout the Chain O’ Lakes up to the Wisconsin border.
