A fight in Tobaccoville which led to the resignation of Mayor Billy McHorne -- who then quickly rescinded the resignation -- has led to bills in the legislature which would allow for recalls in the village. Senator Joyce Krawiec (R) and Representative Debra Conrad (R) filed Senate bill 823 and House Bill 1058. The proposed law would required signatures from 20% of registered voters (736). The recall would take place at the same time as another scheduled election.
The precipitating issue was ordinances restricting firearms within 1000 feet of an occupied building and banning exploding targets set off by high velocity bullets. Neither of the ordinances passed.
