Rep. Moeller said with a clean energy bill, lead cleanup legislation and other critical issues being voted on recently and still pending consideration at the Illinois Capitol, this online forum is a great opportunity for constituents to make sure they understand these complex issues.

"Our world is changing rapidly, and our public policy has to change quickly to meet it or we face devastating consequences for how we produce and use energy, preserve open lands, upgrade our water infrastructure and so much more," Moeller said. "I’m a strong environmental advocate in Springfield and want to make sure my constituents know what is being discussed and why it is so important we take these critical stances to protect our environment. Our future depends on it."
