HB470 was sponsored by Rep Davidsmeyer. The idea to make corn the state grain was brought to him by Pittsfield Ag students and was a great way for them to learn the process of how a bill becomes a law.

Rep Davidsmeyer sponsored the legislation in the House of Representatives. It was signed into law by Governor Rauner at a bill signing ceremony on Tuesday, August 15 at the Illinois State Fair.
