Funny, I thought GuyFawkes10 was suggesting that the people would indeed fly to STL, and then shuttles would drive them back to Quincy. Sounds like enplanements to me.

With all due respect, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that there has got to be a rule against what you are suggesting. In order to receive the federal aviation grant, there have to be 10,000 enplanements. (Enplanements are not the number of tickets that are sold, it's the number of ticketed passengers who actually travel on the flights.) If what you're suggesting was allowed, the…

Is there a list somewhere on the city's website of how many council meetings attended and or missed by aldermen? If not there should be. That is just as important if not more than Mayor Moore's City report card ie., "how are we doing".

This is off topic, but your claims like this really need a link, instead of you spewing Democrat talking points on every issue. "a guy paid by oil companies to tell you that extreme levels of his company's byproduct are okeydokey can be more convincing than the near-entirety of Earth's scientists" Who is that oil company guy? And who is "the near entirety" guy? I read the actual…

Tracy levee bill passes House committee

Tracy levee bill passes House committee

5 months, 3 weeks 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.
