  • Changes To Illinois Eavesdropping Law Headed To Quinn

    The state Senate has approved legislation that would replace Illinois’ eavesdropping law of 1961, sending the bill to Gov. Pat Quinn for approval. The legislature found itself needing to make changes to the law after the state Supreme Court deemed it unconstitutional earlier this year, saying it violates free speech. The legislation, which passed the senate 46 to 4, looks to prevent “private conversation” from being recorded secretly, but also decriminalizes the recording of “conversations that cannot be deemed private,” like fans “yelling” at a sports arena” or “a loud argument on the street.”

    About 130 properties were damaged and 54 people have since been rehoused, said Denbighshire council. It has pledged to continue to support people as the clean-up continues. Meanwhile, train services have resumed on the north Wales coast after repairs to a sea wall which collapsed onto the line at Mostyn, Flintshire. The storm last Thursday caused major disruption with roads closed, schools shut and trains stopped in parts of north Wales. Hundreds of people were forced to leave their homes as high tides and gale force winds battered the region. In Rhyl, evacuees were cared for at the town’s leisure centre, and 400 properties were without power.

    Hello admin. I discovered your “Pro Video Security &” page via Google but it was hard to find as you were not on the front page of search results. I see you could have more visitors because there are not many comments on your site yet. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your rankings and traffic to your website: I managed to get close to 1000 visitors/day using their services, you could also get lot more targeted visitors from search engines than you have now. I used their services and got significantly more traffic to my site. Hope this helps :) Take care.

    I do love the manner in which you have framed this challenge and it really does offer me a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, from everything that I have seen, I only wish when other commentary stack on that folks continue to be on point and not get started on a soap box involving the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this excellent piece and though I do not necessarily go along with it in totality, I respect the point of view.
