So we're opening the door to our most pristine area to corporations for what, a mono-cultural tree farm where old-growth forest used to stand? What kind of extortion did they use to get that deal? Or was it just a flat-out bribe, aka lobbying?

The NYCO Amendment will exchange 200 acres of state land adjacent to NYCO’s wollastonite mine (about 50 of which will be mined) for 1,500 acres, including two Class A trout streams, to be added to the Jay Mountain Wilderness.

The Township 40 Amendment addresses a century-old dispute about private/public ownership of land in the Forest Preserve. A couple of hundred residents gain clear title to their parcels, and in exchange contribute to a fund to buy land to be added to the Preserve.

Both are win-win propositions: vote “yes.”
