News & Notes
Gov. Pritzker Signs Seven Pieces of Legislation Further Honoring and Protecting Illinois Service Members
One of the more important bills signed is House Bill 3865
HB 3865 establishes additional consumer protections to protect service members and veterans. Championed by the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Illinois Attorney General’s Office, the new law requires private companies that advertise veterans’ and service members’ benefits appeal services to publicly disclose the same services are available free of charge through county veterans’ services officers and other governmental agencies.
The other bills signed included:
· HB1290 – To allow improperly discharged LGBTQ veterans to apply for upgraded discharges.
· HB2776 – To expedite transitioning veteran professional license applications to be approved within 30 days.
· SB505 – To provide a state of Illinois flag for any National Guard member dying on active duty or in State required training.
· SB2089 – Allows Illinois Department of Natural Resources Parks to fly the POW/MIA flag in addition to the US Flag and the State of Illinois Flag.
· HB1915 Allows issuance of a Folds of Honor decal for license plates.
· HB2894 – Declares the first Saturday in May “Veteran Gardening Day”
All remaining burial capacity in the Fort Sheridan National Cemetery is expected to be depleted within the next 15 years. The proposed transfer of forest preserve land would provide more than 50 additional years of capacity to accommodate current and future burial needs of veterans but this decision still hasn’t been made!
We are now in the process of collecting petitions to be submitted to the Forest Preserve District Board (whose members are also the Lake County Board Members). We need your help to reach 20,000 petition signatures. Please click here to print out the petition and sign it. Then ask your neighbors to also sign it. Then Mail it to:
Colonel Mike Peck (USA, Ret)
3327 Hutchinson Rd
Mundelein, IL 60060
With your support, we want to submit 20,000 signatures to the Board.
Thanks for your support.
