For sure, he's waiting to see the best deal for the Union. He was high up in the Plumbers Union at Celotex before they closed. Tried to bump the boys at the Vets' home after that... That didn't work, but he still weaseled himself into a $76,000 yr position there, that I'm not sure how he was qualified, but that's the Union difference, I guess.

You can actually look at the Public School retirement on there its just in a separate section. Some pretty large numbers in that one to be sure. $17,000 per month ain't bad if you can get for watching the price is right in your underwear but that is what the system calls for that we as taxpayers allowed to be put in place.

Driver's License will no longer be taken for certain types of traffic offenses

From Associated Press:

Gov. Pat Quinn has signed legislation ending the practice of posting a driver's license as security after certain types of traffic citations.

Quinn's office made the announcement late Saturday evening. The Chicago Democrat says the measure will help Illinois motorists hold onto a vital piece of identification and also allow law enforcement officials to do their jobs.
 
The legislation was sponsored by Democrats Sen. Michael Noland of Elgin and Rep. John D'Amico of Chicago.
 
It eliminates posting a driver's license as bail for certain traffic offenses. Instead, it allows drivers to sign a citation as their guarantee that they will appear in court or pay a fine.
 
The "Sign and Drive" legislation will take effect immediately with the governor's signature. The bill is SB2583.
