Illinois (ECWd) –

While reading through to the Illinois Emergency Management Act, the last section was rather comical in light of the current political atmosphere in Illinois and the Nation.

(20 ILCS 3305/22) (from Ch. 127, par. 1072)
Sec. 22. Political activities prohibited. No emergency services and disaster agency established under the authority of this Act shall be employed directly or indirectly by any person or persons for political purposes.
(Source: P.A. 85-1027.)

Sure glad we have laws that prohibit political activities during an Emergency.
