Not without another subsidy which ain't gonna' happen since Essential AIr Service is no longer a justification when you have an airline operating already.

If we were able to get an airline that goes to Chicago along with cape air that goes to St. Louis, we'd easily hit the mark. I wonder if any companies that fly out of midway in Chicago would do some kind of flight to Quincy.

I'm not endorsing the idea, just explaining how I read it. It seemed pretty clear from your comment about requiring enplanements that you didn't understand what he was saying.

Sadly, facts like these don't seem to mean anything to the Hard Core Left-Wing Dimmokrat Obama supporters. They just get in the way of the Blind Agenda and, oh hell, must just be Republican BS anyway. And that Fox News, you can't believe ANYTHING they say! Now, CNN, NBC, PBS and anonymous bloggers, now THEM you can believe!

and recall Obama's removal of the work requirement:
the Obama Administration issued a bureaucratic edict declaring that state welfare bureaucracies would no longer need to comply with the work participation standards established in the 1996 welfare reform law.

Illinois regulators can force electricity customers to help pay for the $1.6 billion FutureGen clean-coal project

From Associated Press:

Illinois regulators can force electricity customers to help pay for the $1.6 billion FutureGen clean-coal project, a state appeals court said in a ruling Tuesday.

The 2-1 decision handed down by the Illinois Appellate Court OKs a state plan to charge electricity customers an estimated $1 to $1.40 a month to help pay for the long-delayed project. FutureGen would refit a western Illinois coal plant with technology to remove carbon dioxide before the coal is burned and store the CO2 underground.

Ken Humphreys is CEO of the FutureGen Alliance, a group of five coal companies working with the U.S. Department of Energy on the long-planned project.

Humphreys said the decision "will keep the FutureGen 2.0 project on track to create economic growth, jobs and near-zero emissions power."

Power suppliers including Commonwealth Edison had argued state regulators lack authority to require the payments.

Commonwealth Edison said in a brief statement that it will comply with the decision.

Illinois Competitive Energy Association, a group of market-power electricity providers that is part of the legal challenge, referred questions to its attorney. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

FutureGen was first proposed during President George W. Bush's first term in office. The public-private project initially would have built a new experimental power plant in eastern Illinois that would have burned coal after removing the carbon dioxide. The greenhouse gas, which has been linked to global warming, would have been pumped underground for storage.

The project was revived by President Obama's administration and scaled back to use an existing power plant in Meredosia in western Illinois, though underground storage remains a key piece of the plan.
