U.S. House grants longer use of Will County landfill

A bill that would allow Will County to continue to use the Prairie View Landfill in Florence Township for an additional 15 years passed the U.S. House on Thursday, with bipartisan support from U.S. Reps. Bill Foster, D-11th, and Adam Kinzinger, R-16th.

The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2015, which has yet to be voted on in the Senate, included a provision inserted by Kinzinger and Foster that allows Will County to continue using the 455-acre dump on the site of the former Joliet Arsenal through 2041.
