Newly elected U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill., said Monday she sees the proposed airport near Peotone and Illiana Expressway as projects to create economic benefits — and she wants those benefits stay in the area.

Kelly said she has been told that will be followed up with a bill calling for local control of any new airport, when the state Legislature reconvenes in November for its fall veto session.
“I know it’s located in Will County. But I look at it as a Second Congressional District airport,” she said.
