Unfortunately, the dems were able to put that one little word "intentionally"...meaning that they took a page out of Obama's book and will now all claim they didn't know anything about what, if anything, was being held from the public...

The one that was supposed to be passing out the petitions here in Adams County-- the one who signed it at the bottom, and got paid the money per signature, was from California. That was one of the reasons some of those petitions were discounted in Adams county.

Care to back up your statement with any facts? Also be sure to recognize that businesses don't really pay taxes....consumers do.

Saying and doing are different. My bet is that you would be for term limits but as demonstrated, what the people want will not happen, same with illegal immigration.

What petition for the Illinois libertarian party was passed around in California? And I would also be interested in why they didn't read what they were signing.

Tracy levee bill passes House committee

Tracy levee bill passes House committee

3 months ago by Brent Engel

The measure would require Illinois to better define the flood risk associated with levee construction

An Illinois House panel has recommended approval of a plan dealing with flood levees.

The resolution was sponsored by Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy). It was endorsed Tuesday by the Illinois House Agriculture and Conservation Committee.

The measure would require Illinois to better define the flood risk associated with levee construction, create uniform regulatory policies and demand a timely response to applications.

The resolution has not been without controversy. Floodplain Coordinator Al Murry of Pike County Missouri wrote a letter last week to Illinois lawmakers.

In it, he said levee standards must offer the same level of protection for all states. He also said that unilateral changes would be devastating to livelihoods, transportation systems and crop land in Missouri.

Supporters previously have said the measure would not lead to greater flooding.

If the resolution is adopted by the full House, it would go to the Senate, which has until Saturday to approve it.
