Republican legislative leaders are pushing for action on a statewide capital investment plan to create jobs and address the state’s transportation and construction needs.

Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont and House Republican Leader Tom Cross of Oswego met March 11 to outline their ideas for a public works program. They focused on initiating negotiations between the four legislative caucuses to generate a bipartisan package that could be supported by the Governor and lawmakers from both parties.

Both leaders said that any allocations from a capital plan must be fair to all areas of the state, the projects should be based on the needs of the state, and any projects that have been promised must be funded.
