I am concerned about protecting our well-being in Lake County, Illinois, and preserving our valuable land, air and water. Building the Rt. 53/120 extension would do neither. Instead, it would create financial hardships for residents, increase pollution-related health hazards, and impact more than 31,000 acres—more than in all Lake County Forest Preserves!

I am not in favor of:

· Raising tolls on I-94

· New tolls on I-94 at 137

· New tolls on I-94 at Deerfield Rd.

· $1500/yr tolls on 53 for a rush hour commute

Nor do I support:

· Higher tolls on I-294 and other tollways

· Raising my gas taxes

· Siphoning taxes away from schools

· Privatizing $400M worth of state land

Finally, I am concerned that the Illinois Tollway would fall over $1 billion short of the project's $2.6 billion construction cost—even after imposing all these new taxes and tolls!

Therefore, I urge you to reject the Rt. 53/120 extension. The costs are just too high!
