Legislation to remove school notices from newspapers dies on house floor

House Bill 4232, sponsored by Rep. Dave Severin (R-Marion), which sought to eliminate the publication of the school statement of affairs in newspapers was soundly defeated today by the Illinois House of Representatives. 

Severin’s bill received only 29 votes in favor of passage, less than half of the 60 votes the measure required to advance to the Senate.  This is a huge win for Illinois’ newspapers and demonstrates that most legislators still believe in public notice – not just posting information to anonymous government websites.

Representative’s Barbara Flynn Currie (D-Chicago), Lou Lang (D-Skokie), La Shawn Ford (D-Chicago), Dave McSweeney (R-Barrington) and Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) all deserve a special thanks for their vocal opposition and “no” votes on the bill today. 

Please make sure to review the roll-call (click here to download a PDF version) and to reach out to any legislators in your area who voted “no.”   We must make an effort to say “Thank You” to those legislators that supported the industry and keeping public notices in newspapers.
