Cunningham: Ambitious clean energy plan makes Illinois national leader

Pause on student loan payments extended through January

The federal government has extended the pause on student loan payments an additional four months, to Jan. 31, 2022, to give Americans more time to recover from pandemic-related job and income losses. Here’s what you need to know:

The Biden administration on Friday issued what it says will be the final extension to a student loan moratorium that has allowed millions of Americans to put off debt payments during the pandemic. Under the action, payments on federal student loans will remain paused through Jan.

Any news on this new bill that just got passed
Thank you for saying no to the bill this morning.
Thank you for helping pass HB2275 to restore Chicago educational labor bargaining rights!!!
People in the 19th Ward would like to know how your planning to vote on Bill #163? I have not been able to find what your intentions are, your constituents are looking for an answer.
Good Day, Show your support to law enforcement and vote no to HB163. Should these changes be passed it will forever change law enforcement. No one will take the job and crime will sky rocket, further adding to the continued mass exodus from Illinois.
HOW ARE YOU GOING TO VOTE??? PLEASE VOTE NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!To all who keeps thinking about defending law enforcement. Troopers Lodge 41 Membership, Late on January 5th, the Illinois General Assembly filed a 611 page bill that eliminates law enforcement as we know it from every community in the State. The Illinois G.A. has until January 13th to pass legislation before the next duly elected General Assembly takes office. Senate Amendment number two to House Bill 163 radically changes law enforcement, victim services, criminal proceedings and the protections of every law enforcement officer in the State, regardless of employment as a peace officer, deputy, trooper, university police officer, corrections officer, court security officer or other law enforcement. Through 611 pages, HB 163 eliminates all protections from law enforcement officers. It eliminates an officer’s ability to pursue their job without civil liability, it eliminates the ability of officers to pursue collective bargaining agreements, it invalidates the constitutionally protected due process of officers and it substantially increases the costs for employers of law enforcement officers. Specifically, SB 163 does the following: Eliminates Qualified Immunity for police officers, making them civilly liable to siren chasing trial lawyers Eliminates Officer’s rights to Collectively Bargain, creating a “special class” of public employee who does not have these rights in Illinois Eliminates impartial arbitration over burdensome residency requirements Allows for unrestricted and ungoverned disciplinary policies of law enforcement officers Prohibits departments from taking advantage of cost saving federal surplus programs Allows officers to be punished or fired based on anonymous and unsubstantiated or unverifiable complaints Mandates that those unsubstantiated and unverified complaints be kept to be used against officers forever, with no destruction and no limits on how they can be utilized to inflict harm on officers Substantially increases both initial and ongoing education requirements with no money to pay for the increased costs and no assurances that the courses will even be offered Mandates the use of body cameras by all departments for every officer with no money to pay for the cost of those cameras Defunds any department that does not comply 100% with the draconian requirements of the legislation Eliminates funding for law enforcement agencies Eliminates Cash Bail Enacts multiple benefits for felons Prohibits use of force in almost all situations, and makes officers criminally liable for virtually any use of force Removes prohibitions against obstructing police officers Charges officers with Official Misconduct, a class 3 felony, for banal and incidental issues The fight over this bill is a fight to save law enforcement. If we loose this fight, it might as well be a crime to be a law enforcement officer in Illinois. You need to contact your Senator and Representative to implore that they do not hand this state over to the felons while criminalizing our profession. I have included some simple instructions to help you, your friends, your coworkers and your family members in helping to save Illinois from this destructive agenda. We are all counting on you.

Please oppose prolonging the mask mandates. They do not work to stop the spread and are harmful on so many levels. Start by reading this. It has many legitimate references and important points:
Enough with the "Emergency" games. The Emergency IDPH Rule 690.50 was only in effect for 150 days. It has now expired and can not be renewed for 24 months. Limits on power are intentional.....if you want to enforce tyranny then pass actual legislation. JCAR is not a legislative body.
Will you work with me to enact a "Tribal Charters Amendment" to the Missouri Constitution fulfilling federal authorization in Missouri for State Recognition of Native American Tribal Nation Units of Government? Missouri enacted an Indian Expulsion Act in the 1830's and the Jacksonian Democrats "Trail of Tears" death march to Oklahoma where several thousand Cherokee died, in part, occurred in Missouri. It is time for Missouri to welcome Native Americans to Missouri and to authorize the Missouri Residents who are acting as the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Provisional Chiefs of a Native American Aboriginally Sovereign Domestic Nation, to file with the MO Secretary of State, for deposit in the State Archives, Tribal Government Charters, to be ratified by a majority of the votes of the Tribal Roll Members of the affected Native American Domestic Nation at which time the Provisional Tribal Officials are succeeded by those elected to the Offices described within the Tribal Charter. Where statutes conflict with a Tribal Charter, the provisions of the Charter shall prevail. An aboriginally sovereign Native American Dependent Domestic Nation enjoying State Recognition in Missouri, consists of the heritage Indiginous Peoples of all U.S. States, Commonwealths, Territories, Possessions, and the District of Columbia, who are Citizens, or Seasonal Residents, of the State of Missouri, appearing on the Membership Rolls of a Tribal Nation; pursuant to federal law, each Tribe sets the qualifications for, and is the sole judge of its members. The State of Missouri and its deparments, divisions, bureaus, offices, and agencies, and also all political subdivisions of this state, shall extend a dollar for dollar credit for all taxes and fees paid to a Native American Tribal Government and its political subdivisions or tribal municipal units of government. In like manner as each U.S. Commonwealth is represented in Congress by a Delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives, each Native American Domestic Nation that is recognized by this State shall elect to the Missouri State Senate one Senatorial Delegate who shall posses voice and vote in both regular and special committees as well as within the committee of the whole, but in final debate proceedings on the Senate floor, shall possess advisory voice but not any vote. A State Recognized Native American Tribal Government obtains its Certificate of perpetual, "as long as the grass grows and rivers flow," Missouri State Recognition, bearing the original or franked signatures of the Governor and Secretary of State, upon filing its Tribal Charter in the State Archives. Each such Native American Dependent Domestic Nation shall possess its exclusive territorial and subject matter jurisdictions within the boundaries of its Tribal Homeland, or Indian Territory, of all interests in real estate, owned, leased, or held by surface, aerial, or subterranean easement, by a Tribal Nation or Tribal Unit of Government, any corporation, association, society, lodge, trust, or other entity of any character, which shall be formed, existing, and is regulated by Tribal Law, the Tribal Members on the Rolls of Native American Tribal Governments, which interests in real estate shall constitute the Tribal boundaries of its Reservation, as an Aboriginally Sovereign Domestic Nation and a Protectorate and a Dependent body corporate and politic that is recognized by the State of Missouri, without charge or fees, for all military, disaster response and recovery, educational, hospital clinic, with construction, maintence, and tribal perpetual access to electric and natural gas utilities, public water supply, sanitary and storm sewers, bridge, tunnel, street, toll way, turnpike, airport, waterway, lake, river port, or navigable canal, transportation infrastructures. The trial court Judicial Officers of a Tribal Court of unlimited jurisdiction shall be ex officio Circuit Judges of the Circuit Court for the Missouri At Large Judicial Circuit. The Tribal Judges of Courts of limited jurisdictions and also the Judges of Municipal Tribal Units of Government shall be ex officio Associate Circuit Judges of the Missouri At Large Judicial Circuit. Appeals of right from the Final Decisions of the Missouri At Large Judicial Circuit shall lie before a Native American Apellate Division of three Missouri Supreme Court Commissioners, all of whom shall be duly licensed to practice law, first by a Tribal Government and secondly, by State Reciprocity of all Tribal Licenses and Permits, also to be licensed as an Attorney and Counsellor at Law, to appear before the Missouri Supreme Court. The decisions of the Native American Apellate Division of the Missouri Supreme Court shall then be subject within 90 days to a confirmation hearing for the concurring or dissenting opinions and the Final Judgment of the Missouri Supreme Court en banc, within 120 days.
