Illinois outdoor balloon release ban up in the air

An Illinois lawmaker wants to put an end to certain outdoor balloon releases in the state. Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Round Lake Beach, proposed the bill which would amend the Environmental Protection Act. It would prohibit balloons from being released at outdoor events such as weddings, funerals, birthday parties, and other celebrations. Outdoor balloon releases would still be allowed for higher education and for scientific or meteorological purposes.
