Here it is, Wednesday morning and still no finals on either the Democratic or Republican candidates for Governor in these amazingly tight primary races. So much for the thought of your vote not counting!
IAR Advocacy funds were spent to educate voters on three home rule referenda in Sammons Point, Hometown and Midlothian. The voters rejected home rule in Sammons Point and in Hometown and approved it in Midlothian in that community’s second effort to secure approval. We hope to have final election results, or perhaps an announced recount, in the Friday State Capitol Report, so watch for that emailed report.
The Illinois House is in session today and committees are scheduled to begin work on 2010 spring session legislation. IAR lobbyists will take off our political hats and put on our legislative hats as we head to the Capitol. Senate back to join the House next week.
