Two Lake County lawmakers want to abolish the agency that oversees the Chain O’ Lakes and Fox River in what they say is an effort to reduce redundant government services.
Democrat state senators Terry Link of Waukegan and Julie Morrison of Deerfield are sponsoring a bill introduced in the senate Jan. 28 that, if approved, would dissolve the Fox Waterway Agency and send its assets to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
If this is done over 20 species of Fish will decline or even die off. with out the constant dredging, Grass lake would be completely filled in with silt and not only would the fish be force to adapt to a shocking change, chances of a die off would be inevitable. The protected Yackey nut or Water Chinquapin Lilly that has been striving would be killed off as well. And don’t forget about the Bald Eagles that have took home off of an Island that Fox Waterway Maintains for the growth of our nations bird.
Help us put a stop to this crazy bill. Terry Link and Julie Morrison have no concern for our environment!
