Its harsh weather season in the Midwest and for plenty of us that means lookout to the weather and trying to keep away dangers. Some people, regardless, like to get into the danger. Storm chasers for example from the iconic 90’s film Twister, walk out in their vehicles, gear in drive and race down country roads all to acquire an up close view at one of nature’s most rough weather events. Illinois' Storm Chasers Act stops the contractors from checking homes for mutilation without consent, filing insurance claims, or acting as the homeowner’s representative with the insurer. Additionally, contractors cannot pledge to pay or discount all or any portion of the policy deductible.
