Starved Rock State Park

A proposal to charge a parking fee at Starved Rock State Park is on hold.

Senator Sue Rezin’s idea fell one vote shy of approval by the Senate on Wednesday.  The Republican says some senators don’t like her idea to exempt folks living in La Salle County from paying the minimal fee.  She thinks its fair anyone living in La Salle County doesn’t have to pay because they’re “already on the hook to pay for the increased impact Starved Rock has on our roads and first responders.”

The proposed bill isn’t dead, it’s just been put on postponed consideration which means she can recall it at some point.
