State Representative Keith R. Wheeler appointed to GOP Conference Chair

Illinois House Republican Leader Jim Durkin appointed Rep. Keith Wheeler of Oswego to serve as House Republican Conference Chair. The appointed is extremely rare for a legislator in only their second term as a state representative.

Wheeler released a statement saying, “This role will enable me to be an even more effective voice for Fox Valley families as we work to create Illinois jobs for Illinois families and make much-needed reforms to state government. I am grateful to my constituents and my colleagues for the confidence and trust they have placed in me.”
