Rep. Bos Picked for Critical Task Force Assignments

State Representative Chris Bos was recently selected by Illinois House Minority Leader Jim Durkin  to serve on two state task forces. The Route 53 Expansion Land Alternative Use Task Force, which was created through HJR 6 with Bos serving as a chief House sponsor, and the Protection of Individuals with Disabilities in the Criminal Justice System Task Force.
