Letter: Stop confusion over proposed House legislation
To the Editor: There has been a lot of discussion and misinformation regarding the pending DuPage County Forest Preserve legislation that has been proposed by state Rep. Deb Conroy. Let me make this clear: Conroy's legislation will not eliminate the DuPage County Forest Preserve.
I have spoken to Conroy about this issue and she believes that the DuPage County Forest Preserve serves a key role in preserving our beautiful parks here in DuPage County. Her bill (HB 2377) would create a ballot referendum that would put the elimination of the Board's compensation and benefits to a vote for the citizens of DuPage County.
There is another bill (HB 2479), proposed by state Rep. Dennis Reboletti that would eliminate the DuPage County Forest Preserve Board and pass its responsibilities on to the DuPage County Board.
