Voter fraud in Illinois, who knew? And it always seems to happen in democrat controlled areas, why is that? Seems we need more than voter photo ID to ensure we have honest and fair elections in Illinois. Makes one wonder who gets your vote when your ballot goes into the machine in Adams County since you can't see the result?

All politicians give away our tax dollars but in Illinois it seems democrats do it more often. Oh that's right Quinn and the democrats have controlled and run Illinois into the ground for the last 12 years. The uninformed voters in Illinois won't see the corruption in this Christmas in October give away but they should see it for what it is, vote buying with their tax dollars.

yea, paying for armed security guards to go door to door intimidating people to withdraw their name from the Libertarian petition. Doesn't matter what party he is in he's definitely a Chicago gangster. And saying he is better than Quinn is like voting between a Turd sandwich and a soggy turd sandwich, no thanks.

Tracy levee bill passes House committee

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.
