Lawmakers okay bill for veterans' memorials upkeep

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Illinois lawmakers have approved a measure aimed at boosting the upkeep of veterans’ memorials.

The state’s House voted unanimously Thursday to send the bill to the governor for his signature.

The measure gives municipalities access to funds to maintain local monuments honoring veterans.

Current law allows voters in a municipality to choose to construct and fund a veteran’s memorial. But it doesn’t allow them to use the same money for the monument’s upkeep.

The sponsor of the approved legislation is Rep. Joe Sosnowski.

The Belvidere Republican says the measure will give local governments the means to preserve the memorials for future generations.

The Illinois Senate unanimously approved the measure last month.
