There has never, ever been a board that believes in "saving the money for a rainy day". They have to SPEND THE MONEY. And even SPEND THE MONEY they haven't even gotten yet.

Your missing my point. My point is if new buildings were built with a Capital Fund, a cash $$$$ fund approved by taxpayers, the interest savings would be given back to taxpayers and the buildings would still be built albeit at a slightly slower rate. Do you think the polls for this issue would even be close if approval of a capital fund was partnered with a larger decrease in the bond fund tax rate…

Maybe judges should monitor and approve all government hires. Our country is big on checks and balances and hiring is one of those areas that is frequently exploited for political gain. I know people who turned down government job offers because they refused give a big chunk of the salary back to their political party. Now every time I meet someone with a government position, I wonder which came…

Could Illinois' next governor undo same-sex marriage?

7 months, 1 week ago Alex Keefe, Curious City

Bill to legalize same-sex marriages passed by the state House in November

From Alex Keefe, Curious City:

Chicagoan Christie Pettitt-Schieber has spent a lot of time thinking about the future of same-sex marriage in Illinois. Apparently, so has her girlfriend of two years.

As Pettitt-Scheiber tells it: “She goes on Etsy all the time, and she will, pull up, like, hundreds and hundreds of engagement rings, and then force me to look at the website and go, ‘Do you like this one? Do you like this one? What do you think about this one?’”

But before they take the plunge, Pettitt-Schieber, 26, asked Curious City a more fundamental question about Illinois’ gay marriage law, which was approved by the legislature late last year and is set to take effect statewide on June 1st.

Could the next governor reverse the same-sex marriage legislation that just passed?

Gay marriage has been a hot-button political issue in Illinois for a few years, and the allegiances and beliefs involved don’t always break along party lines. After months of furious lobbying and nose-counting by both backers and opponents, the bill to legalize same-sex marriages passed by a narrow margin in the state House in early November.

But the foundation of Christie’s question gets to an apolitical issue: the relationship between the branches of Illinois government.
