1
HOUSE RESOLUTION

2 WHEREAS, The State of Illinois is often regarded as having
3 two distinct regions, the City of Chicago and downstate
4 Illinois; and

5 WHEREAS, Even communities north of Chicago are considered
6 “downstate” because they have more in common with rural
7 southern and central Illinois counties than they do with the
8 City of Chicago; and

9 WHEREAS, The divide between the City of Chicago and
10 downstate Illinois is frequently manifested in electoral
11 results such as the 2010 gubernatorial election in which the
12 Democrat candidate won the election despite only carrying four
13 counties out of 102 counties, and, in fact, did not need to
14 carry any other counties to win because of the margin of
15 victory in Chicago and Cook County; and

16 WHEREAS, The City of Chicago is frequently treated as a
17 separate region of the State and has often been exempted from
18 major legislative initiatives the General Assembly enacts in
19 law because of this fact; and

20 WHEREAS, The City of Chicago is often bailed out by
21 taxpayers in the rest of the State, such as the $221 million

HR0101 – 2 – LRB101 10673 MST 55782 r

1 bailout for the CPS pension system that was signed into law
2 last year; and

3 WHEREAS, Numerous counties in the southern and central
4 parts of Illinois are approving resolutions to become sanctuary
5 counties for gun owners, while the City of Chicago has some of
6 the strictest gun laws in the country; and

7 WHEREAS, The majority of residents in downstate Illinois
8 disagree with City of Chicago residents on key issues such as
9 gun ownership, abortion, immigration, and other policy issues;
10 and

11 WHEREAS, The dissension between downstate Illinois and the
12 City of Chicago spans the nearly 200-year history of the State,
13 and there have been several attempts in the past to divide
14 Illinois into two states; and

15 WHEREAS, The City of Chicago passed a resolution in 1925 to
16 form the State of Chicago; and

17 WHEREAS, Western Illinoisans declared their region as the
18 “Republic of Forgottonia”; and

19 WHEREAS, In 1981, State Senator Howard Carroll passed a
20 Cook County state split bill through both chambers of the State

HR0101 – 3 – LRB101 10673 MST 55782 r

1 Legislature; and

2 WHEREAS, There continue to be organizations pushing for
3 separation between the City of Chicago and downstate Illinois
4 such as the “Southern Illinois Secession Movement”; and

5 WHEREAS, Separation of states continues to be a focus in
6 the news media as there is a movement in California to divide
7 that state into multiple states; and

8 WHEREAS, Article IV, Section 3 of the Constitution of the
9 United States provides in part: “New States may be admitted by
10 Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or
11 erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any
12 State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts
13 of States, without the consent of the Legislatures of the
14 States concerned as well as of the Congress.”; therefore, be it

16 HUNDRED FIRST GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, that
17 we urge the United States Congress to take action to declare

Rockford Scanner™: Marijuana HR 420



Email your tips and photo to us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


Rep. Earl Blumenauer filed a bill on Wednesday to remove marijuana from the federal Controlled Substances Act. In a nod to marijuana culture, it has the official designation of H.R. 420.

The new bill filed in the House on Wednesday by Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) is titled the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. If passed, it would remove cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act.

“While the bill number may be a bit tongue in cheek, the issue is very serious. Our federal marijuana laws are outdated, out of touch and have negatively impacted countless lives,” Blumenauer said in a press release. “Congress cannot continue to be out of touch with a movement that a growing majority of Americans support. It’s time to end this senseless prohibition.”

This isn’t the first time that 420 has worked its way into official legislative numbering.

California’s first effort to create statewide medical cannabis regulations was through a bill numbered SB 420 in 2003.

In 2017, a Rhode Island senator filed a marijuana legalization bill given the designation of S 420.

Rockford Scanner™: Illinois Proposes To Expand Medical Marijuana Program To Fight Opioid Crisis




 (AP) –

An Illinois House panel has endorsed a proposal expanding the use of medical marijuana to fight the state’s opioid crisis.

The House Executive committee voted 8-3 Thursday. The plan would allow individuals who qualify for opioid prescriptions to apply for the state’s medical cannabis program.

Rep. Kelly Cassidy is the sponsor of the proposal. The Chicago Democrat says it’s a less-addictive alternative to treating pain and could be a remedy to the growing number of opioid overdoses across the state.

Cassidy says she is working on cleanup provisions that she hopes will get committee approval next week before moving to the House floor.
The Senate’s approved the idea. But Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner has fought previous efforts to expand medical marijuana.
