Anyone live in Illinois? Watch out for your cats!

I belong to Alley Cat Allies, an organization that advocates for stray and feral cats.
There is currently a bill pending in the Illinois legislature that would drastically increase the number of cats captured and impounded in shelters. Many of these cats would be killed. This includes house cats who have just been let out of the house.
I find this really disturbing!

That's horrible! I mean, I kind of understand the underlying reason for it, but talk about going about it the wrong way!
