Illinois Historic Barns Resolution (S.R. 700)

 

return

     
 
 

On April 7, 2006 by a vote of 55-0, the Illinois Senate passed a resolution calling for the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, in consultation with the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and the Illinois Department of Agriculture, to determine the needs of historic barn preservation efforts, their potential impact on tourism and economic development in rural communities, and programs and incentives in other states.

The resolution was introduced by Ill. Sen. Deanna Demuzio, co-chair of the Illinois Historic Preservation Legislative Caucus. LPCI will work with Ill. Sen. Demuzio and the respective state agencies on this effort.
