SYCAMORE – State Representative Jeff Keicher, R-Sycamore, has been appointed a member of the Illinois House committees responsible for approving higher education funding and policy legislation; the Higher Education Committee and Higher Education – Appropriations Committee, respectively. Keicher’s appointment to each committee was made by House Minority Leader Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs.
“The students, faculty and staff of Northern Illinois University deserve to have a strong voice on every state policy and funding decision made in Springfield that impacts our state universities,” Representative Keicher said. “I am committed to leveraging my position on both higher education committees to be a relentless advocate for NIU in the fine tradition of my predecessor, Representative Bob Pritchard. That work begins immediately.”
Additional committee assignments for Representative Keicher will be announced in the near future. The Illinois House of Representatives is scheduled to return to Springfield for the annual Fall Veto Session on November 13.
