QUINCY — The Adams County Board is working to draft a resolution opposing an Illinois Senate bill that would override county government authority on wind farms.

The bill, which was filed by Sen. Bill Cunningham, D-Chicago, would remove a provision in the state’s Counties Code that allows any part of a county zoning ordinance pertaining to wind farms that is in effect before Aug. 16, 2007, to continue in effect.
