Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Haine's campaign website lists the following issues:[2]

  • Jobs & Economic Development
Excerpt: "Haine voted to extend the Illinois Enterprise Zone Program; a move widely supported by business groups. In the Metro East, eenterprise (sic) zones have helped spur major local investment and job creation..."
  • Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "Senator Haine has voted to cut his own pay four years in a row and continues to refuse taxpayer funded per diem and travel reimbursements."
  • Public Safety
Excerpt: "Senator Haine has supported numerous anti-drug measures, including laws making it illegal for those on parole to purchase ingredients used to make methamphetamine and cracks down on parents who expose their children to meth production."
  • Our Universities
Excerpt: "Senator Haine has always supported SIU-E. He passed legislation creating the National Corn to Ethanol Research Center, and helped solve an issue of overcrowding by securing $79 million for a state of the art science lab and $4.1 million for a dentistry lab. Senator Haine supports other area colleges as well. He fought for over $16 million in capital construction dollars for upgrades and expansion at Lewis & Clark CC."

Gaming license

On December 1, 2010, the Illinois Senate voted 31-20 in favor of a plan that allows for five additional casinos and electronic gaming at horse track facilities, increasing the number of licenses for casinos in the state to 15.

Under the plan, new casinos would operate in Chicago, southern Cook County, Danville, Rockford and Waukegan.

"Is it a huge expansion? Yes, I'm not going to deny it. But we have a huge deficit in the state of Illinois, we have got huge problems in the state of Illinois, so you don't look at little things to fix it, you look at big things to fix it," said the bill's sponsor, Sen. Terry Link, D-Waukegan.

Lawmakers like Haine would prefer another way to increase revenue.

"It's not the best thing we could do. It's not good, but it's the only thing available for new * Revenue Committee, Illinois State Senate," said Sen. William Haine, D-Alton.[3]

Protests

In May 2011, Senator A.J. Wilhelmi sponsored House Bill 180, which would require protesters to move an extra 100 feet away from grieving families at funeral services.

Senators unanimously approved House Bill 180 to keep protesters at a distance of 300 feet away from the funeral site. Protesters are not permitted to engage in “disorderly conduct,” such as loud singing, playing music and chanting, 30 minutes before and after the funeral or memorial service.

“I think the 300 feet will...expand the zone slightly so that families who are grieving will be less disrupted and will have the ability to mourn the loss of their loved ones, without this bill failing in court,” said state Sen. A.J. Wilhelmi.

Wilhelmi added that the bill still protects freedom of speech.

Sen. William Haine, who co-sponsored the bill, said the legislation helps provide respect to military families.

“It is certainly within the interest of this state to establish peace and order at a funeral site,” said Haine.[4]
