Illinois Senators Introduce CAIRO Act

The Creating American Investment, Redevelopment and Opportunity, CAIRO, Task Force Act to form a cabinet-level task force was introduced Jan. 30 by U.S. Senators Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., and Dick Durbin, D-Ill.

The task force would be created to address the housing, health and economic crises in Cairo.

In introducing this legislation for the new task force focused on Cairo, the Senators said they are seeking to codify a September request to President Donald Trump that they said he has failed to act upon. 

In that letter, they highlight the federal government’s role in exacerbating the problems in Cairo and call on his administration to fulfill a Trump-campaign promise to help rural communities across America like Cairo.
