Illinois Senator Steve McClure Speaks on Veto Session

As the fall veto session comes to a close there are pieces of legislation that could use some clearing up. The Invest In Kids Scholarship Program has been ended, legislation on firearms in Illinois has been changed and cleaner energy solutions have been passed.

Illinois State Senator, Steve McClure, had voted to continue the Invest In Kids Program and though it was not passed during the fall veto session, Senator McClure says this will be an area he will be revisiting in the spring session.


As a result of the Illinois Assault weapons ban, Senator McClure says that law-abiding gun owners are being targeted in the state of Illinois for the type of gun they own.


With wind and solar becoming a growing issue across Central Illinois, nuclear energy has been another contested topic that moved successfully through the veto session, ending the moratorium on nuclear energy in Illinois.


Senator Steve McClure represents the 54th Senate District and says he is constantly talking with constituents from Christian and surrounding counties on issues like wind, solar, and the recent Ameren remediation project.

Senator Steve McClure appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
