A PETITION I started to protest the construction of the Illiana Tollroad needs 102 more signatures to reach 500. Ideally, that target will be met and surpassed, but more pressure is necessary. There is still time to put pressure on the State of Illinois and the State of Indiana to halt the progress on this project and make sure the money intended for this is better invested and Illinois and Indiana taxpayers are not on the hook for a plan that will likely have little to no positive social, economic, or environmental impact.
If I can reach 500 plus signatures, I will prepare a full document to send to Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, IDOT, InDOT, the Federal Highway Administration, and Illinois and Indiana legislators opposed to this project in an effort to put pressure on them to question and hopefully resist financing this in some form or another.
If you haven’t signed the PETITION do so now.
