Following the passage of H.R. 2471, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) released the statement below touting the wins secured for Illinois’ 16th Congressional District.
Washington, DC – In April 2021, the House of Representatives announced the introduction of Member Designated Project and Community Project Funding requests, putting the power of the purse back into the hands of Members of Congress just as the Framers had intended.
Following the passage of H.R. 2471, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) released the statement below touting the wins secured for Illinois’ 16th Congressional District:
“It has been a long process, and a much anticipated one, but I’m proud to announce the funding for several of our designated projects for communities across the 16th District. It was an honor to call each of the funding recipients to share the good news and we look forward to seeing these projects get underway.
“Each of the projects that were included in this spending package will make an incredible impact on the recipient communities and be an invaluable use of taxpayer money. From investments in our water systems and infrastructure safety measures to the development of vital equipment and advancing education, these projects are all worthy of funding and my office is thrilled to continue advocating for more like them as we continue through the remainder of my term. Again, I’m proud to see these projects get the funding they need and deserve, and I appreciate all the work of my team and our community partners in getting this done."
