I am sure he has enough money that he obtained via other illegal methods to repay this - after all - isn't the old saying robbing Peter to pay Paul??

As far as everything I've read, Duryea's plan is to move folks to his other restaurants until he decides what he's doing with this building. I may have misread that, but it seems like he's taking care of his employees.

At least Mr. Schock has said he'll repay the taxpayers for the office redecoration. But does he have enough money to pay back the rest?

It's Bush's fault, of course. After all, he gets blamed for everything else that has gone wrong economically in the last 6 years. [/sarcasm]

How about the employees. Did they get notice? When one quits a job it is considered proper to give two weeks' notice. Did the employer give the workers any notice? I hope so, for their sake so they could have started looking for another job.

Quinn makes minor cuts to $35.7 billion Illinois budget

8 months ago from Associated Press

Gov. Pat Quinn has used his line-item veto power to make minor cuts to a $35.7 billion state budget plan he has called "incomplete."

In a statement Monday, Quinn says he's eliminating $250 million for renovations of the state Capitol. The Chicago Democrat also says the state will sell nearly half its airplanes.

Lawmakers passed the spending plan for the fiscal year that begins Tuesday after Democratic leaders couldn't find enough votes to extend Illinois' temporary income tax increase. Quinn had lobbied in favor of the extension in the midst of a tough re-election campaign against Republican Bruce Rauner, who opposes it.

The lawmakers' plan doesn't allocate enough money to cover state expenses. It uses special funds for day-to-day operations and banks on possible future increases in revenue.
