Legislators really look at these to gauge public opinion. Your name will be listed online at ilga.gov as an "opponent" of the bills. It takes less than 5 minutes to do. As each House and Senate bill passes through various committees we get an opportunity to file new witness slips. So even if you've done it in the past, you can continue to file new slips.
