These are "elected officials" not employees. They are not entitled to heath insurance in my thinking based on the hours they work. I do realize they put in more time than the council meeting. But they are still a long way from being full time. Why are city taxpayers being burdened with the cost of their heath care when the county and the school board do not feed at the trough? The total cost for the…

And why should this stop? It's all part of their compensation. They spend a lot more time than what you see on TV. For example, if you eliminate the health care you reduce the likelihood of a small business owner wanting to run. Plus it also means most of the council members have the same health insurance as other city employees...which seems like a jolly good idea There are two reasons…
pjohnf - Clock ticks on Illinois term limits ballot measure - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Why does the proposal have the size of the House and Senate in it? It should have only dealt with whether voters support term limits for our corrupt politicians. However even with the House and Senate changes in it, it should be allowed to be voted on by voters. The only reason Quinn and Madigan oppose the measure is because it threatens their power and control.

In other words Quinn's figures are a lie and a distortion of the true employment and unemployment numbers. Numbers I've seen that show only 47% of working American's have full time jobs. That is hardly good news for workers.

Kenny Wallace promotes Ethanol in Springfield

NASCAR driver and commentator appeared with Sen. Sullivan

State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) and NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace promoted the use of E-15 fuels during a Wednesday visit to the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. 

“E-15 is a high-performance fuel, and I know a little about high performance,” Wallace said. “More people should have the chance to buy fuel that helps Illinois’ largest industry: agriculture.” 

E-15 is a blended biofuel made up of 85% gasoline and 15% ethanol. E-15 is available at some gas stations in Illinois but is less common than the 10% ethanol blend sold across the state. 

“The more ethanol we put into our gas, the more money we put into Illinois’ farm economy. By expanding the use of E-15 we promote agriculture, help the environment with lower emissions and reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” Sullivan said. 

NASCAR has exclusively used E-15 fuel during practice, qualification and races since 2011. NASCAR switched to E-15 to lower emissions and promote the use of biofuels. 

A 2013 study reported that – since switching to E-15 – NASCAR’s viewers were 40% more likely to support the expansion of ethanol fuels and 50% more likely to use ethanol blends in their own vehicles. The switch to E-15 also reduced on-track emissions by 20%. 

Since his first NASCAR race in 1988, Kenny Wallace has 900 starts, 9 Nationwide Series wins and three Nationwide Series Most Popular Driver awards.
