The County Board voted to kill the Scritchlow amendment. I taped the meeting and will be posting the discussion. 5 Republicans voted with the Democrats.

For once the Chamber of Commerce is on the right side of an issue. Usually they love Big government tax and spend liberals.
The Ecology Action Center claims they talked to 1000’s of stakeholders and they all approve of the plan. How did they miss the 1000 member businesses of the Chamber?
They are AGAINST the recycling plan without the Scritchlow Amendment! I hear the GOP will likely cave and defeat it anyway. The County Board meeting is at 9:00. Supposedly it will be live streamed. It should appear here: http://www.mcleancountyil.gov/Archive.aspx
The Chamber sent this letter to all County Board members. I wonder if this will be the first time the Board votes against them.
