Rep. Wheeler passes safe drinking water bill for Kendall County communities

State Rep. Keith Wheeler (R-Oswego) speaks on the need to pass Senate Bill 1016 to allow the municipalities of Montgomery, Oswego, and Yorkville to move forward with their effort to secure access to safe drinking water from Lake Michigan. Passage of the legislation is needed to permit communities outside DuPage County to join and connect with the DuPage Water Commission. This initiative will provide the aforementioned communities with the most sustainable, highest quality, and most affordable source of drinking water, as local aquifers in the Kendall County region are gradually depleting. Rep. Wheeler’s bill passed by a vote of 110-1.
