New Bill Gives Citizen’s More Rights

Illinois State Representative Larry Walsh, Jr. introduced House Bill 5727, which would help bolster the rights of the people in the face of an annexation that they don’t want. The Bill, which was introduced February 16, 2018, is currently in the Rules Committee. This is a Bill to keep an eye on because if passed in time, it could give the people the power to overturn Elwood’s annexation, should they vote to approve the annexation that would allow NorthPoint Development. Be sure to contact your legislators to encourage them to help support and pass this bill. Contact information is available on our website under Take Action
