ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A local congresswoman’s weeklong workforce tour takes a stop in Rockford today.

U.S. representative Cheri Bustos met with workers and students at Eigerlab to learn more about the CNC Operator Program.
Eigerlab is a state of the art resource that partners with entrepreneurs to grow businesses. Bustos says the partnering for Illinois Economic Future Tour is a chance for her to learn what workers’ priorities are in the Rockford area.

"When I sit around here today and talk with folks who care deeply about the economy and job creation is, I'll say, 'What can I do to get the government out of your way to your success?' And then on the other side of that is 'What can I do?' If there's legislation that I need to consider, when I go back to Washington, I like to look for legislative solutions,” said U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL 17th District).

Last year Bustos launched the partnering for Illinois Economic Future last year by touring 7 Community Colleges in the 68th District.
