SPRINGFIELD, Ill. —
Vandermyde also went to House Minority Leader Jim Durkin, a Western Springs Republican whose district includes the land Vandermyde was on. He told Durkin he didn't like the idea conservation police could go onto private property, unannounced and without probable cause.
Durkin said he was addressing "the authority by which conservation police can enter private property to search and seize possible contraband in violation of the Wildlife Code." Durkin's bill awaits a House floor vote.
