Learning How Bills Become Law
Corn Bill Passes the House!
Chatham Elementary 4th graders were present to witness their official state vegetable bill pass the Illinois House of Representatives with a 115-0 vote, on May 20. These students began work on the bill at the beginning of the school year when they were studying Illinois state symbols and questioned why there was an absence of an official state vegetable. They then researched all the vegetables grown in Illinois, considered the economy, surveyed community members, and came to a consensus that sweet corn should become the official state vegetable of Illinois. Thanks to the support of Senator Sam McCann, and Representative Raymond Poe for sponsoring the bill, and all the senators and representatives that also signed on! They helped make education come to life for these students and created memories that will last a lifetime for these students. Watch the "germination" of the Corn Bill! https://youtu.be/RJYIKRs9uyE
