Don’t Wait! Act NOW to improve Illinois waterway access law!

Sunset, Banner Marsh, Illinois

The IPC has been working with a statewide coalition led by the Illinois Environmental Council to improve Illinois waterway access law. Now, this Action Alert goes out to all members and friends and supporters of the IPC.

The legislation, enrolled as HB5844 is up for consideration NOW during veto session and will likely be considered next week! The bill is our response to the recent Holm v. Kodat Supreme Court decision that encouraged the paddling community to work with the Illinois General Assembly to improve and modernize Illinois waterway access law for the benefit of everyone in our state. The time to act is NOW! Please sign on and share broadly!
