A new year normally brings resolutions for many, one area lawmaker hopes ending hateful treatment of others is a societal resolution in 2018.
U.S. Congressman and Taylorville native Rodney Davis was one of many Republican lawmakers dodging gunfire when a southern Illinois man started shooting on a congressional baseball practice in Virginia in June. He says the people blasting these hate-filled messages are leading to people getting hurt.
Davis says the hate being spread has gotten to a point to where it is going too far, and everyone needs to take part in stopping it.
Davis says there have been many good things happening in Washington despite the divide and uneasiness across the country, and he wants to continue to bring legislation that benefits the constituents of Central Illinois.
