Law ensures police, others can do roadside charity
CHICAGO (AP) — Now, no one in Illinois can stop firefighters or police officers from collecting charitable donations on roads — even if they wanted to.
Under a new Illinois law, public safety officials can't be denied permits to collect money for charities from drivers along roadsides. Gov. Pat Quinn signed the law Friday and it takes effect immediately.
The governor's office says Illinois is the sixth state to adopt such a law. The others are Florida, Nebraska, Texas, California and North Carolina.
