Oppose House Bill 7
Thank you for letting your voice be heard on the issue of forced consolidation. House Bill 7 would force school district consolidation across the State of Illinois. Consolidation is a local decision and it should remain that way, and a detailed plan for voter-initiated consolidation exists in current law. Due to the advocacy of school leaders, over 1800 emails have been sent opposing forced school consolidation. With House Bill 7 up for a committee vote tomorrow, March 17 at 2 p.m we are asking that you send the members of the committee an additional email to voice your opposition to HB7.
Want to do more? You can fill out a witness slip for the committee. Make sure to mark the witness slip as “Opponent” and “Record of Appearance Only.” If you are having any difficulty filling out a witness slip, follow these instructions.
