The Will County Democratic Caucus is proposing the county uses tax revenues generated from cannabis sales in the county to pay reparations to blacks. The caucus has drafted a four-page resolution outlining the plan. Will County Board member Steve Ballich (R-Homer Glen) vehemently opposes the move, and found it offensive the way white people were described in the resolution. Will County Board member Rachel Ventura, District 9 (D-Joliet) read the resolution into the record at the Will County Democratic Caucus Meeting.
