THE ILLINOIS HOUSE IS VOTING TO MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO RELEASE MORE THAN 50 BALLOONS INTO THE AIR. 

 

THOSE BUSTED FOR RELEASING A BIG BUNCH OF BALLOONS WOULD GET A WARNING THE FIRST TIME, AND THEN AN UP TO 500 DOLLAR FINE FOR A SECOND OFFENSE. REPRESENTATIVE SAM YING LING OF ROUND LAKE BEACH EXPLAINS WHY THIS IS NEEDED.

 

 

REPRESENTATIVE DAVID WELTER OF MORRIS SAYS SO MANY BALLONS LET GO AT ONCE IS BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND CAN CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS.

 

 

THE SENATE WILL TAKE UP THE BILL NEXT.
