Thanks (again!) to all of you who called Rep Conroy’s office to register opposition to HB 3099, which would place the DuPage County Forest Preserve back under County Board rule. For reasons why this is not a good idea, read the blog from March 23.
An updated summary of reasons to oppose HB 3099 is attached.
Filing a WITNESS SLIP is one more concrete action that you can take to oppose HB 3099. A witness slip is filed online with the committee in which the bill is being discussed and records opposition to the bill as if you were there in person. Directions for filing a witness slip are below. Please act today! Witness slips can be filed until HB 3099 is voted on in committee – which will be around 2 pm on Wednesday, March 25.
WITNESS SLIPS need to be filed new each week so if you filed one last week, please do another one this week to be sure your voice is heard.
Please forward this, post on Facebook and Twitter and ask your friends to help us defeat HB 3099 by filing a witness slip now.
Directions for filing a witness slip are below. Call or email me if you need help navigating the system. Thank you for helping register opposition to HB3099.
