Politicians Back From Spring Break

Posted by wlpo on April 17, 2012

After a long spring break, lawmakers are back in Springfield today.

State Senator Sue Rezin has plenty of bills that still need to make their way thru before becoming law.  The Republican is proposing an “Adopt-a-Park” law where groups can adopt sections of parks to keep them clean.  Rezin also is sponsoring bills to include Habitat for Humanity in tax check offs and open library memberships up to the homeless.  She’s also sponsoring a bill that stiffens penalties for selling drugs in a public park.

State Representative Frank Mautino has his share of notable proposed bills too.  He’s a co-sponsor in establishing an annual fee for using state parks.  Mautino also is among those leading the charge to finding an alternative funding source for regional offices of education.
