State Representative Grant Wehrli will be putting his experience as a former Naperville City Councilman and business owner to work this spring on the Illinois House Committees dealing with key legislation impacting Illinois’ jobs climate and our local communities. Representative Wehrli (R-Naperville) has secured coveted positions on the House Labor and Commerce, Personnel and Pensions, and Cities and Villages Committees.

“These committees play a crucial role weighing in on legislation that will impact our jobs climate, and our state and local budgets.  My participation ensures my constituents have a voice in these discussions throughout the process,” Representative Wehrli said.

Representative Wehrli has also garnered a spot for the next two years on the House Higher Education-Appropriations Committee which is tasked with reviewing proposed funding for colleges and universities.

“College students and universities have struggled through great uncertainty during our ongoing budget stalemate. I’m looking forward to working on the long-term funding solutions they need and deserve.” Wehrli added.
