The Leadoff - Wednesday 6/15/22

WGLT's The Leadoff is everything you need to know for Wednesday, June 14. Caterpillar is moving its headquarters to Texas, but the CEO of the Greater Peoria Area Economic Development Council says that won't have much of an impact on Central Illinois. Plus, the decurrent false aster might look like a run-of-the-mill daisy flower, but it's actually a flower that can only grow along the banks of the Illinois River. WCBU's Tim Shelly spoke with Emily Hodapp of the U-S Fish and Wildlife Service about the efforts to preserve and expand its delicate habitat in the Illinois River floodplain.
