    Is it apathy? or am I missing something? I expect more from fellow Chi-towners.

    Visiting my State Rep's office tomorrow, to find out status.

    Here's the latest. Senate passed it March 10th of last year House had first reading March 11th of last year. In april of last year it had not made it back to floor for a 2nd reading and was pushed to the Rules Committee and hasn't made it back out since.

    Well I will cross my fingers that it stays on the shelf. Vaping is the best thing that has happened to me (health-wise).

    State Sen Terry Link (out of Lake Bluff) was the bills sponsor.
    It is the word of my rep (Beaubian), that it probably will be reintroduced this year(2011), but no knowing when.

    Get after him

    *****************

    Terry Link
    906 Muir
    Lake Bluff, IL, 60044

    He has 2 phone numbers and 2 fax numbers as well.

    Lets get him plastered with info/ threats to fight his re-election/and overall contacts, till his system locks up.

    Thanks.
    Was getting concerned it wasn't being looked at. I still think this "T Link" dude needs barraged with e- , phone and letters, to back him off.

    I'm very close to opening a possible retail outlet/storefront for e-cigs, but it gets nerving when I see this stuff.

    Malyden.
    I'll look at doing that.

    I find myself checking the Windy City Vapers Club site more now than the Chicago threads here. I would love it if when you find info like this to post it on our site Home - Windy City Vapers Meet You will get a much bigger response there.

    Thanks.
    I'm not a Chi-towner and just wanted them to be aware this wasn't dead. Just dormant.
    Terry Link (st sen), from Lake Bluff, will most likely be reintroducing the same/similar bill again this year.

    Point being, is the succer needs jumped on before he does damage.
