CN Railway Company opens new training facility in IllinoisThis past October Senator Harris attended a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Canadian National (CN) Railway Company’s U.S. employee training facility in Homewood, Illinois. The state of the art facility is one of two centers being built as part of a comprehensive, company-wide CN initiative designed to revitalize job training for existing and new employees.

The facility is intended to give students new skills and hands-on training for all key railway jobs. The company is looking to hire 3000 employees across their North American network this year. This suburban Chicago facility is sure to bring good things to the 15th district.

Harris-depaul-1DePaul University Professor Zachary Cook and students in DePaul's 'Explore Chicago' program spent time recently with Senator Harris learning about how legislation is introduced and becomes law and discussing recent legislative issues.

The students were interested in the senator's work on Senate Bill 2178, known as Rocky’s Law, a measure to provide catastrophic insurance coverage for school athletes that passed in 2013. Sen. Harris explained what happened to Rocky Clark, whose experience inspired the bill, as well as the process and challenges it took to get it enacted.

The students asked Sen. Harris about concealed carry legislation and any upcoming gun control issues in the General Assembly.

Sen. Harris enjoyed telling the students about his career, how he got involved in public service and about the specific concerns of his district.
