MATTESON—(ENEWSPF)—September 29, 2015. Congresswoman Robin Kelly today expressed her support for Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s request for a temporary stay on an operating permit issued to the Singleton Stone Quarry until the quarry’s potential impact on the Kankakee River Basin can be further examined.
“I want to applaud Attorney General Madigan for intervening on behalf of the people. While the quarry is located in Indiana, much of the impact will be felt in Illinois. Many environmental questions have been raised in both states, but not fully answered,” Rep. Kelly said.
“I look forward to working with the Attorney General’s office and officials in both states to avoid further flooding and potential damage to the river’s eco-system,” she said.
