Blagojevich at it again, call for HELP

We sued him last year and got an injunction against him and he's trying it again. Trying to take money out of Motorcycle Rider Training that we pay for with our registration monies.

I’m really glad to see these types of posts. I join in the “letting me vote be hear” group, by calling on the bills that matter to me. I do wonder how the process works though. Does the senator call his secretary prior to a vote to find out the public wishes? How much of the voters views get taken to the floor?

When I call in the morning I'm also going to state, there should be a bill initiated to safe gaurd these funds. (I thought there already was one.)

Regardless, I’ll continue calling.

Thanks for the lookout.

i enjoy these post A LOT since this is a large community of motorcyclist, WE must like in all things, protect our interest, our freedom and our rights, and not let people that say and do one thing with our money in government or office, and then SWIPE it for any other program that it wasnt drafted for.

ABATE is a very great Org!

*****update*****

Today April 3 the Illinois Senate passed along party lines HB 473 37 yeas, 21 nays

This bill was high jacked after passing the house and the new language was introduced on April 2

a synopsis of the bill



8 (30 ILCS 105/8.46 new)
9 Sec. 8.46. Transfers to the General Revenue Fund.
10 (a) Notwithstanding any other State law to the contrary and
11 except as otherwise provided in this Section, the Governor may,
12 through June 30, 2008, from time to time direct the State
13 Treasurer and State Comptroller to transfer sums specified by
14 the Governor up to a total sum of $530,000,000 from any fund or
15 funds held by the State Comptroller and State Treasurer to the
16 General Revenue Fund in order to help reduce the State's fiscal

1 deficit and preserve the State's ability to meet all of its
2 fiscal obligations. In determining the amount of the transfer
3 to the General Revenue Fund, the Governor shall calculate
4 whether the available resources in the fund are sufficient to
5 satisfy the unexpended and unreserved appropriations from the
6 fund for the fiscal year.


two more amendments were added protecting the following funds



"(c) No transfers may be made under this Section to the
7 General Revenue Fund from any of the following funds:
8 (1) The Road Fund.
9 (2) The Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development
10 Fund (OSLAD).
11 (3) Metabolic Screening and Treatment Fund.".

5 "(4) The Illinois Veterans' Homes Fund.
6 (5) The Illinois Veterans Assistance Fund.
7 (6) The LaSalle Veterans Home Fund.
8 (7) The Anna Veterans Home Fund.
9 (8) The GI Education Fund.
10 (9) The Quincy Veterans Home Fund.
11 (10) The Illinois Military Family Relief Fund.
12 (11) The Veterans' Affairs Federal Projects Fund.
13 (12) The Manteno Veterans Home Fund.
14 (13) The Veterans' Affairs Library Grant Fund.
15 (14) The Veterans' Affairs State Projects Fund.
16 (15) The Military Affairs Trust Fund.
17 (16) The Federal Support Agreement Revolving Fund.

1 (17) The Illinois Veterans' Rehabilitation Fund.
2 (18) The Armory Rental Fund.".

this bill now goes back to the house for consideration

Please call your State Reps and ask them to vote NO on HB 473

If you lived in Chicago you could vote as many times as you like... And you'd even be able to keep voting for years after you passed on.

You can vote once per election, and it might not be a bad idea to look at the voting record on this before going to the next elections.

You can bug your elected officials as often as you like, however, providing you don't cross the line separating "alert and involved citizen" from "total fruitcake".

Letters going out today if I can manage it.
