IL Food & Farm Act Update
Our Man in Springfield, Jim Braun, reports that the Local Food and Farm Act bill in the Illinois State Legislature is about through its ordeal. Braun notes that bill is now with the House Rules Committee where it must go through before final House concurrence. Braun expects the Rules Committee will meet early Tuesday morning and move on the bill. Braun also believes that there is a broad base of support and sponsorship for final passage of the bill in the House. Governor Quinn is then expected to sign the bill into law.
