Sheila Simon Working To Improve Illinois Waterways
(Springfield, IL) -- Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon is taking part in a discussion on how to improve Illinois' waterways and make sure they're in good health. One of the topics includes finding ways to make sure the water doesn't come out of the banks and damage people's property. Simon had a meeting with Ag leaders and environmentalists in Washington, D.C. last week. She says they talked about the possibility of creating one agency to oversee the needs of the rivers. That could mean combining the duties that are now shared between the Army Corp of Engineers and the EPA.
