ICYMI:Oberweis signs pledge to limit congressional terms
Veteran state Sen. Jim Oberweis (R-Sugar Grove) has thrown his support behind a plan that would enact term limits on U.S. members of Congress.
Oberweis, who recently launched his challenge to first-term U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood (D-Naperville) in the 14th District, made his support officials by signing off on a U.S. Term Limits (USTL) pledge.
