Take a look at this photo from the 2011 McHenry County Fair:
The name Parker Happ appears in the cutline of the photo above.
Since 2010, Happ has been paid $30,512.70 by Jack Franks’ Political Action Committee.
Now, Happ shows up as the one filing a Freedom of Information request for the names of those who signed State Rep. Steve Reick’s petition opposing Jack Franks-inspired House Bill 171.
In the Illinois House, you see, Madigan does not have the power to appoint Republicans to committees.
The House Republican Leader does that.
If Governor Bruce Rauner signs HB 171, Franks will be able to place the twenty-three GOP members on the County Board to any (or no) committees as he wishes.
Besides signing Rep. Reick’s petition, you let Governor Bruce Rauner know he should veto HB 171 by sending your comments to: https://www.illinois.gov/gov/contactus/Pages/VoiceAnOpinion.aspx
