Before the McHenry County Republican Party’s Convention last month, State Rep. Mike Tryon and I spent some time talking about the bills that State Senators Pam Althoff and Karen McConnaughay had passed unanimously sent to the House of Representatives.
After I told him my reservations, he asked me why I thought he had taken the bills with the intention of passing them.
Both bills are in subcommittees.
Bills sent to subcommittees have a tendency to stay there.
Now word has reached me from a reliable source that Tryon indeed has decided to let them stay in subcommittee.
I’m also informed that the Northwest Herald has been told by Tryon that the bills are dead.
A thank you from McHenry County taxpayers is in order. Email him at email@example.com.
