BLOOMINGTON- Congressman Rodney Davis made a stop in Bloomington on Monday.

He presented a legislative update to members of the Mclean County Republican Party during their monthly luncheon.

Congressman Davis commented on a variety of topics including the stonewalling of legislation passed by the House Republicans.

Davis says he wants to see changes made that would help the GOP take control of the U.S. Senate.

"We have to stop the stonewalling of the 300 good pieces of legislation that the House Republicans have passed have been held up in Harry Reid and Dick Durbin's Senate. Got to make a change there and we got to make a change in Springfield to make sure we get this country and this state right on track," said Rodney Davis, U.S. Congressman.

He says the Republican Party will need a strong voter turnout in November to make those changes happen.

Davis also went on to speak about the Malaysian plane crash.

Congressman Davis says it's time for the President and America's allies to step up and make changes to foreign policy.

"And it's going to take America and its European allies to put a stop to it. And, and I don't think there's a clearer message that can be sent to Europe and to the hard working taxpayers of this country that our foreign policy directives now have got to change," added Congressman Davis.

The Congressman hopes to find out more about the crash through classified briefings when he returns to Washington later this week.
