Rep. Casten Hosting Inflation Town Hall On Saturday In Palatine

PALATINE, IL — With the $700 billion Inflation Reduction Act expected to soon head to President Joe Biden’s desk for passage, US Rep. Sean Casten (IL-3), of Downers Grove, wants to talk to local residents about what the climate, health care and tax bill is.

The 755-page bill, which passed in the United States Senate on Sunday, will soon be voted on in the House before Biden is expected to sign off on it. Casten is hosting an in-person town hall on the legislation at noon Saturday at Palatine Village Hall, 200 E. Wood St., according to a news release. Doors open at 11:30 am

Organizers said the town hall will focus on how the Inflation Reduction Act “helps address the climate crisis and lowers health care costs for families.” Casten will be taking questions from constituents.

The winner of the two-year seat will oversee a newly remapped congressional district. The remapped IL-06 includes all or sections of the suburban Cook Count communities of Alsip, Chicago Ridge, Palos Heights, Worth, Crestwood, Oak Forest, Oak Lawn, Tinley Park, Orland Park, Orland Hills, Palos Hills, Palos Heights, Hickory Hills, Justice, and extending into the Chicago neighborhoods of Clearing, Beverly and Mount Greenwood; and in DuPage, Downers Grove, Oak Brook, Oak Brook Terrace, Lisle, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Lombard, Elmhurst, Darien, Hinsdale and Willow Springs.
