Sandoval Land to CommunityIllinois State Senator Martin Sandoval (D-Chicago), Chairman of the Transportation Committee, sponsored a measure that will transfer land back to local communities throughout the state.

“I was able to work with the Illinois Department of Transportation to ensure that land that was no longer being used was granted back to the owner or entity it originally belonged to,” stated Sandoval.  “This is a cost-saving measure. Without granting the land back to its original owner, the state would be paying approximately $100,000 for each parcel it wasn’t using.”

Now law, House Bill 1330 granted five parcels and seven easements of land that are no longer being used by IDOT to local communities throughout Illinois.
