But the implications aren't just for Chancelors of Universities. This would have to legally apply to every government job which would certainly impact applications and it will also surely result in some hires being second guessed and place a cloud over the incoming person selected. The public is not going to be privy to the reasons candidates are not selected and yet eventually some candidate…

Cigarette tax revenue in Illinois is falling far short of the amount projected last year, state officials say

From From heartland.org:

In May of 2012, state legislators approved a $1-per-pack increase on the price of cigarettes, nearly doubling the state’s tax rate to $1.98 per pack, the 17th-highest state tax rate in the nation.
