On Religion, The Media and Life as a 20-something in Chicago

If the Illinois General Assembly’s veto session were a football game, state Sen. Michael Noland, D-Elgin, said, then Community Unit School District 300 won the first half. That’s because during the first three days of the session last month, the Carpentersville-area school district managed to stop a vote on legislation to extend tax breaks for the economic development area around Sears’ corporate headquarters in Hoffman Estates another 15 years. “Now we’re entering the fourth quarter,” Noland said. And thanks to “good defense on behalf of District 300” and an amendment filed Wednesday by the senator, a vote on any one of three bills that seek to extend those incentives may not come before the session ends Thursday, he added. Noland filed a fifth amendment to House Bill 1883 Wednesday that would delete Section 3 of the bill’s fourth amendment — basically, all the language regarding the EDA, he said.
