Illinois representatives are going to bat for the Rock Island Arsenal.
Congressman Dave Loebsack and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos met today with senior army leaders to talk about how the sequester would affect the Arsenal.
They also talked about the importance of maintaining a strong industrial base there.
Loebsack and Bustos say they will continue to fight for the Arsenal and the future of the Quad Cities.
