With all due respect, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that there has got to be a rule against what you are suggesting. In order to receive the federal aviation grant, there have to be 10,000 enplanements. (Enplanements are not the number of tickets that are sold, it's the number of ticketed passengers who actually travel on the flights.) If what you're suggesting was allowed, the…

Is there a list somewhere on the city's website of how many council meetings attended and or missed by aldermen? If not there should be. That is just as important if not more than Mayor Moore's City report card ie., "how are we doing".

This is off topic, but your claims like this really need a link, instead of you spewing Democrat talking points on every issue. "a guy paid by oil companies to tell you that extreme levels of his company's byproduct are okeydokey can be more convincing than the near-entirety of Earth's scientists" Who is that oil company guy? And who is "the near entirety" guy? I read the actual…

Each year I suggest the city buy up seats and shuttle people back from StL to meet the departure numbers. 1200 x $52 is $62,400, small price to pay to get the million. City could sell tickets to any flier that needed seat and that would reduce the $62K down a lot. Question, are there enough seats available to meet the number of departures, will they have to fill out every seat every day until end of…

On second try, Senate passes 'cupcake girl' legislation

5 months, 3 weeks ago From suntimes.com

From From suntimes.com:

At first, it looked like the “cupcake-girl” bill suffered the same fate as an overbaked batch of brownies or cookies: It got tossed.

But the Illinois Senate had second thoughts, undoing a vote it had taken earlier in the day and voting to give a downstate 12-year-old cupcake baker the right to stay in business without her family having to build on a second kitchen in their home to satisfy their county public health department.

The Senate used a parliamentary maneuver to reverse a 17-32 vote that appeared to have killed legislation aimed to help Chloe Stirling. On a second try, the Senate voted 57-0 on legislation that would keep her mixing bowls spinning and bake-oven lit.

"Let them eat cupcakes," said state Sen. Heather Steans, D-Chicago, after the early-evening revote.

Earlier in the day, the Senate overwhelmingly rejected legislation that would have permitted home-baked bake sales so long as the sellers agreed to undergo sanitation training, label ingredients, pay licensing fees, notify buyers their products were made in a home kitchen and had sales of less than $1,000 per month. 

State Sen. Donne Trotter, D-Chicago, the bill's chief Senate sponsor, agreed to remove those requirements from the bill so that it returned to the form that had passed the House earlier. That plan allowed local health departments to take action against home-kitchen operations that sell baked goods only in the event of a complaint or foodborne illness outbreak.

The legislative push aimed to address what many felt was the injustice of a 12-year-old Chloe Stirling in Downstate Troy having her home-baked, cupcake-sale operation shut down by Madison County public health officials.
