  • You may have heard that the Illinois Governor and the Illinois legislature are at odds in dealing with this year’s fiscal budget.  Both sides are saying the other needs to cut services or raise taxes.  The Governor has stated that one of the cuts COULD be the state’s operation of the World Shooting Complex, effective September 1.  We have been assured by IDNR representatives and representatives of the Governor’s office that both sides are still working to find common ground, and hopefully a compromise can be reached to avoid even a temporary suspension of operation of the Complex.
