Rest Easy, Illinois, Your Legislators Are On The Job
The Legislature this week overrode Governor Pat Quinn’s full veto of a measure that allows residents to collect the carcasses of animals dead on roads. Quinn in a statement said he “believes this bill compromises the safety of people along roadways.” But state Rep. Roger Eddy, R-Hutsonville, said that if a person can pull off to the side of the road and change a tire safely, he should be able to collect roadkill safely.
