Naperville women reviving effort to get Equal Rights Amendment passed in Illinois

Naperville women reviving effort to get Equal Rights Amendment passed in Illinois

Illinois continues to debate three sentences that could grant women equal rights across the country.

Four women’s groups from Naperville will visit the state Capitol this week to rally and lobby lawmakers to ratify legislation first introduced to Congress nearly a century ago: the Equal Rights Amendment.

While members of the Will County chapter of the National Organization for Women, the League of Women Voters, the American Association of University Women and Act Connect Engage say the amendment is needed now more than ever, opponents counter by saying Congress and the states need to go back to the drawing board because the existing language could hurt women in the long run.

District 204 calls for end of Tuesday voting in some elections

District 204 calls for end of Tuesday voting in some elections

Indian Prairie School District 204 officials are questioning why Illinois' consolidated elections have to be scheduled on a Tuesday.

Like many school districts across the state, Indian Prairie beefed up its security to prevent the public from entering any portion of a school building where children are located until a person's identification is vetted through a criminal database.

Yet on an election day, anyone can enter polling places located in schools.

The Indian Prairie School Board is appealing to the Illinois Association of School Boards and its member districts to support state legislation to move consolidated elections from the first Tuesday in April to a weekend day.

DuPage County starts initiative to drop greenhouse gas emissions

In an effort to be cool and at the same time save a little green, the DuPage County Board Tuesday approved joining the Sierra Club's Cool Counties program.

The stated goal of the initiative is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the county by 10 percent by 2020 and 20 percent by 2030, based on 2007 levels.

In a press conference after the County Board meeting, County Board Chairman Dan Cronin noted the steps already taken by the county to reduce its carbon footprint, including building its own power plant, purchasing more than 30 alternative fuel vehicles, installing a green roof and retrofitting aged mechanical equipment.

Will County Heroin forum focuses on next steps in fight against drug's use

As politicians talked about the next move in the fight against heroin Friday, Alaina Malfeo stood in the back of the room by a memorial set up to victims of heroin overdoses.

Her brother Anthony was one who had fallen prey to the drug. He was 22 when he died of a heroin overdose in April 2014.

"It's so important for people to realize how bad the situation is ... whether it's Will County, Cook County or the surrounding area," said Malfeo, of Orland Park. "It could affect any family; it doesn't matter."
