PEORIA, Ill. (AP) - Applications are available to replace Darin LaHood in the Illinois Legislature.

LaHood resigned from the Illinois Senate and recently won a seat in Congress, replacing former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock. Schock resigned earlier this year after questions about spending.

The (Peoria) Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1WkILpt ) that Republican Party leaders from the ten counties in the state Senate district have created a formal selection committee. LaHood is a Republican. Henry County GOP leader Jan Weber is leading the selection committee.

The committee tentatively has set Oct. 4 as the day to meet and choose a replacement.

Applicants must be 21-years-old, a registered voter and have lived in the district for two years.
