HB 799 was introduced by State Representative Ron Wait (R-Belvidere). The new law now makes it illegal for minors under the age of 18 to possess any cigar, cigarette, smokeless tobacco, or tobacco in any of its forms.

Where is Boone County with its recovery zone bonds? McHenry County and Stephenson Counties have passed their resolutions to start their programs. I have contacted Mayor Brereton who obtained information that Boone County’s allocation is $1,863,000, but no one is certain if county government has started the process.
The decision is before the DeKalb County Board because the county was allocated $15 million in Recovery Zone Bonds. Part of the federal stimulus legislation, the borrowed money would serve as a means to finance both governmental and privately-owned building projects at a low interest rate, with the federal government paying 45 percent of the interest.
