SPRINGFIELD – Legislation that would require greater regional representation on the Illinois Tollway Board has passed the Illinois Senate.

“I think it’s fair to say that if you have a tollway in your community, then your community deserves a seat at the table,” State Senator Steve Stadelman (D-Rockford) said. “This legislation corrects that problem for the Lake, Winnebago, Boone and McHenry County communities.”

The Toll Highway includes 294 miles in five tollways that run through 12 counties: Cook, DuPage, Lake, Will, Winnebago, Boone, McHenry, Kane, DeKalb, Ogle, Whiteside and Lee.

Senate Bill 764 was filed after none of the nine seats on the board overseeing the toll way were filled with members from Winnebago or Lake counties. It would require the governor to appoint one member from Lake County and one from either Winnebago, Boone or McHenry counties.

Senate Bill 764 passed the Senate unanimously and now goes to the House of Representatives.
