Governor Pritzker and liberal Democrats in Chicago and Springfield tried to sneak a provision into the House Water Resources and Development Act that would have forced communities near Rend Lake to pay more for water usage.

Yesterday, Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL-13) & I succeeded in stripping this provision from the bill during our T&I Committee markup. It’s maddening that Governor Pritzker was willing to increase costs for our people at a time when they're already struggling to make ends meet.
