Illinois--100 Assemble to Stop Belleville's Daytime Curfew

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

A crowd estimated at 100 people attended Monday's Belleville Board of
Aldermen meeting to say "no" to the proposed daytime curfew. Fifteen
stood to speak against the ordinance. Only three spoke in favor.

The mayor and several aldermen agreed that those who opposed the
ordinance had sound arguments which were well organized and well
presented. As a result, a revised draft of the ordinance has been
prepared. We expect to obtain access to this draft shortly. We will
review it carefully and follow up.

ACTION REQUESTED--only if you live in the Belleville jurisdiction:

Clear your calendar for the evening of July 5 at 7:00 p.m. The
ordinance has been tabled, and the Board of Aldermen will bring it
back up for consideration at that time.

BACKGROUND

Although individual ordinances must be fought on the local level, it's
important that families all across the state be aware of what is
happening in neighboring areas. HSLDA will send future bulletins about
ordinances to all our Illinois contacts.

The trend to push for daytime curfews and unreasonably strict truancy
ordinances can no longer be viewed as simply a local issue. It must
now be recognized that this is a state-wide issue.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel
