"For months you have been reading and hearing about our state budget impasse. It’s no surprise that most of the media coverage has focused on the lack of an overall agreement, and what specific programs and services are not being funded as a result.

What may surprise you to learn is that the vast majority of our state budget spending is continuing uninterrupted without an approved budget in place, and the General Assembly has very little actual control over most of it..." Read the rest of Rep. Wehrli's column in Positively Naperville.
State Representative Grant Wehrli authored and passed House Resolution 714 congratulating Phil Maughan on being elected State Commander of the Illinois VFW. Phil Maughan is a decorated U.S. Army Veteran and a longtime member of Naperville's Judd Kendall VFW Post 3873. Read the resolution here.

State Representative Grant Wehrli is building a strong record in support of protecting our environment according to the Illinois Environmental Council. In his first spring session as State Representative for the 41st District, Representative Wehrli earned a perfect 100% score from the Council for his votes in the Illinois House on initiatives crucial to protecting our environment.

“In Illinois we’re blessed with wonderful natural diversity including forests, wetlands, prairie, and the best farmland in the country. I want to protect those resources for my children and their children for generations to come and I’m proud to be among the Council’s 2015 Environmental Champions,” Representative Wehrli said.
State Representative Grant Wehrli is teaming up with U.S. Senator Mark Kirk for a joint mobile office hours availability on September 16th at the Nichols Library in Naperville. Staff from both Representative Wehrli and Senator Kirk’s offices will be on hand to help answer constituents’ questions and to provide information on programs and services that may be helpful.

“When a constituent has a problem, it can sometimes be unclear whether they need help from my office at the state level, or if they need to contact their Congressman or Senator. Teaming up with Senator Kirk for mobile office hours allows us to provide local families and seniors with ‘one stop shopping’ for help whether their concern is state or federal,” Representative Wehrli said.

State Representative Wehrli and U.S. Senator Kirk’s joint mobile office hours will be held:

• 10am-1pm, Wednesday, September 16th

• Nichols Library, 200 W. Jefferson Avenue, Naperville

No appointments are necessary and walk-ins are welcome.
