SPRINGFIELD — State Sen. Chuck Weaver (R-Peoria) has been asked to serve as a spokesperson for the Education Committee for the 101st General Assembly.
The 37th District senator has also been named a member of the Higher Education, Insurance, Labor, Licensed Activities and Transportation committees.

The 37th District includes all or part of Bureau, Lee, LaSalle, Knox, Stark, Marshall, Woodford, Mercer, Peoria and Henry counties.
