Dear Editor:
I wish to express my complete and utter disgust for ALL the State of Illinois Senators, House of Representatives and the Governor for yet another bill – SB20 – to trample & rob Illinois taxpaying property owners in the Peotone Airport Footprint & the path of the Illiana Tollroad of their land,homes, businesses and way of life. I believe that Governor Quinn, Speaker Madigan & ALL their puppets and cronies have more pressing state government issues to worry about than sneaking in verbiage into a bill otherwise promoted bill to implement “Quick Take” & Eminent Domain for proposed projects that are NOT NEEDED!!

The Peotone Airport & Illiana Tollroad are being promoted as JOB Projects, What a JOKE! The State of Illinois and IDOT could put many out of work tradesmen to work NOW by repairing, improving and upgrading existing state roadways and ultimately SAVE MILLIONS of Dollars as a No Build Option to the proposed Illiana.
I do not believe that we elected these Senators, House Representatives, & our Governor to be so dishonest and underhanded as has become their standard. How do ANY of these people sleep at night knowing that they have NO regard for hardworking taxpayers homes, business,life savings as well as their way of life, which is what they are saying with these type bill passages.

SHAME ON EVERYONE OF YOU!!!!! PUT THESE 2 UNJUSTIFIABLE PROJECTS TO REST ALREADY!! QUIT DESTROYING FARMLAND- FOOD COMES FROM THE FARM NOT THE SHELF!!

Sincerely,
Virginia Hamann – Peotone, IL
