And you have evidence of Schocks "illegal methods"? Perhaps if you do you should inform law enforcement so he can be properly arrested and tried in a court of law, instead of just spreading rumors without evidence.

What does this woman know about being intelligent? Isn't she the one who claimed they had to pass Obamacare to know what is in it? I would think the Prime Minister of Israel knows a lot more about Iran than the Congresswoman from San Francisco.

Tracy levee bill passes House committee

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.
