Ethylene oxide, gun safety among issues addressed by Durbin and Schneider at Zion public forum

A diverse number of issues that touched on employment-based green cards, gun-owner rights and nationwide standards for ethylene oxide emissions were raised by a crowd Saturday at a “Congress on Your Corner” event hosted by U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider along with Sen. Richard Durbin at Zion City Hall.

After warming up the audience with a story that he joked had nothing to do with anything, Durbin turned serious and offered up what he’s currently focusing on — the large cost of prescription drugs that are affecting people who can’t afford them.

Durbin didn’t elaborate too much on the specifics of that work, though, instead giving the floor to residents who had limited time to ask their questions.

Wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, Stan Pasiewicz voiced his opinion on how English should be the official language of the United States and brought up the lack of industry jobs in the county, which he said are needed in order to have a strong country.
