“I’m proud to have earned a perfect score for 2015 in the eyes of the Illinois Environmental Council,” said Tryon. “The IEC is the eyes, ears and voice of the state’s environmental community, and there is no more important work we can do than to protect the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the quality of the environment for our future generations.

“It has been a pleasure working with them on public policy that accomplishes these goals.”

  • HB 352: Allows for bobcat hunting in Illinois

  • SB 681: Adds new invasive species to the list of plants that cannot be sold or distributed in Illinois.
  • HB 1455: Increases electronic waste recycling goals, provides a lower cost and environmentally safe disposal option for CRT glass, and removes costs to local governments
  • HB 1326: Protects the Mahomet Aquifer by prohibiting certain MGP waste from landfills
  • HB 437: Allows for temporary and permanent sites that are allowed to collect organic composting materials

“Mike Tryon is a leader for the environment in Springfield, and voted 100% of the time with the environmental community on seven pieces of key legislation,” said IEC Executive Director Jen Walling. “The IEC is honored by Representative Tryon’s dedication to Illinois’ environment and we look forward to working together in the future.”

Tryon’s 100% IEC Rating — 6 Comments

  1. We need a historical pension voting record beginning in 1971.

    December 15, 1970 was the day voters approved the changes to the state constitution that resulted from the 1970 constitutional rewrite by elected delegates otherwise known as the constitutional convention.

    Two of those elected delegates were Michael J Madigan (current Speaker of the House in Illinois which is the leader of the House) and the second Richard Daley (former Mayor of Chicago).

    Those two are pension destroyers ironically with the help of public sector unions who receice public sector peensions.

    Not ironic when one understand legislative pension hikes and pay hikes for public sector workers are one of the best ways hisorically pre Rauner to get elected to office.

    If not the best way.

    And who wrote the pension hiking legislation?

    Public sector unions and their lobbyists.

    And who elects public sector union bosses snd delegates to their conventions where legislative priorities are determined?

    The rank and file public sector union members.

    The result is a myriad of unsustainable pension systems that are a taxpayer ripoff and were never properly explained to the taxpayer.

    We are just at the beginning of tax hikes.

    An unsustainable wave of hiked salaries and pension benefits is making its way through the systems.

    All these overlapping taxing districts on your property tax bill plus state pensions plus federal pensions plus bonds plus retiree healthcare.


    Kick the can, Hide and seek, Catch me if you can.

    All a public sector money grab with a taxpayer backed guarantee courtesy of one sentence approved by voters thay was added to the state constitution on December 15, 1970.

    That sentence must be repealed in its entirety via state constitutional amendment.

    Almost all state legislators until a few recent reformers such as Duffy, are to blame, that being most who were been in office anytime since 1971.

  2. Gee, Mark.

    I don’t even read your stuff because of your inability to stay on topic.

    Wonder how many others you are turning off with your verbose beating of your drums.

  3. This is one of your golden boys, local republicans.

    100% approval rating from the radical enviro-left.

  4. To offset Cindy’s comment, thank you Mark for attempting to inform voters!

  5. Tryon, always on record for voting with the commies on the left.

    Thanks Mark!

    Your information is always information, important and intriguing.
