More Quinn Problems
- In a stunning blow to Gov. Quinn’s administration, an Illinois appeals court Wednesday tossed out the $31 billion construction program passed in 2009 that has been a centerpiece of his job-creation efforts.
In so doing, the three-member appeals panel also invalidated video poker, partial state lottery privatization, higher liquor and sales taxes and other revenues that add up to $1.1 billion, money that was designed to support massive borrowing for the bricks-and-mortar program.
Quinn vowed an immediate appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court.
Wouldn't it make more sense to do things right the first time? Not here we guess. This one might cost taxpayers another pretty penny.
