I understand that teacher's do not have opulent salaries but the statement about throwing good money after bad is biased. From what I have heard, the schools are structurally sound. Also, the state should not have tell us what repairs have to be made as they should have been completed as necessary. Doesn't the school district have paid staff to understand the state laws for maintenance…

Rauner doesn't have to tell voters in Cook County to vote. they'll be voting early and often anyway, heck even dead ones vote in Cook county and republicans vote for democrats when using faulty voting machines.

Stolen was a purse, wallet, credit card, iPad, 18-inch TV, GPS, cash, diamond earrings with matching necklace, and sunglasses. Doesn't everyone keep those items on an unlocked car behind your house?

House GOP appropriators plan to withhold funding to enforce greenhouse gas rules

House Republicans say they may try to block the EPA's proposed greenhouse-gas rule

From by DTN AgDay:

House Republicans say they may try to block the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed greenhouse-gas (GHG) rule for power plants by denying the funding to implement it, according to Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, a senior member of a House Appropriations Committee. Funding for EPA is included in the Interior-Environment appropriations bill which is being drafted by an Appropriations subcommittee.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., has pointed out that House Democrats will vote overwhelmingly to oppose GOP attempts to drop funding for the GHG rules. "The overwhelming majority of our party is going to support [funding the effort] and the Senate's not going to pass a repeal" of the regulation, he said. "Nor will the president sign it."

It is unlikely that Congress would be able to roll-back EPA's carbon emissions proposal. But it is highly likely that Republicans will construct a procedure that will require Democrats to go on the record as either opposing or supporting the new GHG rules. Such votes then could be used as ammunition in next November's mid-term elections.
