2016 Citizen Resolution Status

    2016 citizen resolutions by county [PDF]
    2016 citizen resolutions by title [PDF]
    2016 Citizen Resolutions by committee assignment [PDF]

    Please note: There was a misnumbering of the resolutions at the Winnebago County hearing and the error was not corrected until some of the votes had already been cast. Due to the confusion that ocurred, the Congress is not confident in the result totals and to rectify this situation, the WCC Rules & Resolutions Committee determined that they would advance each of the resolutions to a WCC committee to review and either advance or reject at that stage.
