Illinois Farm Bureau Statement Regarding President Donald Trump's Infrastructure Plans

The following is a statement Illinois Farm Bureau President Richard Guebert, Jr., regarding President Donald Trump’s infrastructure plan. 

“Farm Bureau and other waterway transportation advocates met with White House officials this spring and urged the president’s infrastructure team to propose overdue, needed investments in modern, efficient waterway transportation. Clearly, that message was received.  

“Illinois Farm Bureau greatly appreciates President Trump’s statements Wednesday in Ohio and his recognition that a 21st century lock and dam system will create jobs and make farmers more internationally competitive. 

“We look forward to working with the president and our congressional delegation to pass an infrastructure bill that invests in new 1,200-foot locks on the Illinois and Upper Mississippi River system.”
