Congressman Bobby Rush demanded actions for a development project that is meant to bring thousands of jobs to his district.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Congressman Bobby Rush demanded action on a $2 billion logistics hub run by Compass Global.

The project that was meant to bring an estimated 10,000 jobs to Rush's district has been stalled without approval from Gov. Pritzker.

"What's wrong with gov? Don't you get it? We want the 10,000 jobs," Rush said.

Several other lawmakers, including Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth, also expressed support for the Compass Global development plan.
