McCombie Pushes for Opening of Campgrounds and Lifting of 2 Person Boat Regulation

Rep. Tony McCombie (71st- Savanna) went to bat for boaters and campers in the Stateline riverside communities she represents following Governor Pritzker’s unveiling of his Restore Illinois plan, which limits family boating to 2-persons (even if related) and keeps campgrounds shuttered for most of the prime summer camping season.

These issues were not her only concerns with the Governor’s Restore Illinois plan, which also mandates that no restaurants or bars may be opened prior to June 26 in the State and offers no date-certain for larger religious services.

McCombie wrote, “in this letter, I hope to address what I believe may be simple oversights on your part,” she wrote to the Democrat Governor, with whom she has sparred repeatedly over failures to involve the co-equal legislative branch in crisis decision-making related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
