08102017MK0304PEORIA – Legislation extending a tax credit for historic river communities was signed into law today. State Senator Dave Koehler (D-Peoria) was a chief co-sponsor of the legislation and issued the following statement:

“This tax credit is an example of what happens when lawmakers put aside their differences to do what is best for their communities and the entire state. In this era of hyper-partisan tension, it is reassuring to see overwhelming bipartisan support for a measure that spurs economic growth in places like Peoria’s Warehouse District.”
