Forby Added as Chief Sponsor of IDEA Bill

Here's the latest on the IDEA (Innovation Development and Economy Act) legislation.

While he's been publicly onboard since Saturday, state Sen. Gary Forby, D-Benton, made it official today. He's now the chief sponsor of SB 2093, taking the place of Sen. James F. Clayborne, Jr., D-East St. Louis, who had been shepherding the bill for the Glen Carbon location.

On the House side, State Reps. Brandon W. Phelps, D-Norris City; Ed Sullivan, Jr., D-Mundelein, and Mary E. Flowers, D-Chicago, have all been added as alternate chief co-sponsors.

According to the General Assembly's website, the bill is still sitting in the House Rules Committee.
