The Times: Proposal to add LivCo to Lincoln heritage area

Federal legislation is proposed to expand the National Heritage Area of Abraham Lincoln’s life and career into Livingston County, among other areas of the state. U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, has joined this effort. The Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area Amendment Act adds Livingston County, the city of Freeport in Stephenson County and the city of Jonesboro in Union County to the Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area, in order to include all of the sites of Lincoln’s legal career and all the Lincoln-Douglas debates.
