State Senator Dale Fowler will serve as a Chief Co-Sponsor on legislation that ensures income from the DuQuoin State Fair will be placed into the appropriate fund to ensure financial stability for years ahead.
Senate Bill 3482 provides uniformity between the Illinois State Fair and DuQuoin State Fair. Currently, funds from the DuQuoin State Fair are distributed in the Agriculture Premium Fund, the same fund from which county fair funds are distributed from. This bill commits the Department of Agriculture to have DuQuoin State Fair income placed in the Illinois State Fair Fund.
With bipartisan support, SB 3482 recently passed the Senate and now heads to the House for consideration.
