STATE REPRESENTATIVE RON STEPHENS REACTS TO GOVERNOR'S IMPEACHMENT

 

We had a chance to talk to State Representative Ron Stephens about the impeachment of Governor Rod Blagojevich. Stevens said the first step has been taken. The House impeachment Friday means the Governor will have to face trial in front of the Illinois State Senate. Stephens said, "The biggest thing that this Governor did wrong was use his public office for personal gain."  Stephens doesn’t understand how anyone could try to get money for the historic appointment of Barack Obama's Senate seat.

 

Stephens says politicians did not come to Springfield to turn the office into a parlor game of "how can I make money for me and my family." He hopes that the Senate follows up on their action and the Governor will be removed from office and will never serve again.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR DEER POPULATION

 

The Joint Task Force on Deer Population Control has proposed ways to manage the deer population.  The task force recommends that deer permits for the antlerless-only Late-Winter Season be available to hunters over-the-counter at license vendors throughout the state.  They also are in favor of extending the length of the Late-Winter-Season from 3 to 9 days and extending the length of the first segment of the regular Firearm Deer Season from 3 to 4 days.  Formation of a task force to review programs designed to reduce crop damage by deer is also on their list of recommendations.
