Illinois: Help Protect Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie

We need your help to ensure that citizens have a say in whether massive industrial threats ruin their communities and harm places like Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie. HB 5727 allows residents who live within five miles of Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie to pass back-door referenda to block annexation for highly destructive, ill-conceived, politically motivated projects that would cause irreparable damage to Midewin, the Village of Elwood, its agricultural heritage, and the surrounding Prairie Parklands. In essence, this bill gives voice to residents to put a pause on politically-driven decisions that don’t reflect the will of the people, so that the politically-powerful few don’t destroy the community of many.
