This week, House Republican Leader Tony McCombie spoke to the 2023 Edgar Fellows class.
The program was held this week at the University of Illinois campus in Urbana-Champaign and brought together more than 30 experienced public policy practitioners who are experts in issues that include economic development, climate change, supply chain, education, Medicaid, transportation, communications between the courts and intergovernmental cooperation. The group also included several House Republican lawmakers.
McCombie spoke to this year’s class as a guest speaker, discussing her role as House Republican leader, bipartisanship in government, and more. She is an Edgar Fellows alum from 2019.
