That may be true Qfingers, but if so why did the (so-called) "superstar finance expert" even take the Illinois job in the first place if she apparently had no intention of trying to come up with some kind of a solution? Remember that airline pilot (Capt. Sullenberger) a while back, who managed to successfully land his crippled plane full of passengers in the middle of the Hudson River (saving a whole…

I wonder how many of these "Free Clinics" Durbin gasses on about he's ever visited for actual healthcare, with his Golden Government (taxpayer supported) insurance. One thing to walk in as a State Senator with the media and entourage to check the service, quite another to be one of the indigent or elderly trying to actually GET service. And, like anything the Government does, it'll…

I noticed that too, GML... and Illinois (if it were to be included among all of the other states that were listed in this case) would have been the furthest east out of all of them. So my first thought was that (maybe) it's purely a geographic issue? Perhaps Illinois falls under the jurisdiction of a different federal court, and not this one located in North Dakota. I honestly don't know,…

Fracking industry officials donating to Rauner

1 year ago by State Journal-Register

Many frustrated with the slow process of implementing rules

Oil producers, drilling companies and geologists frustrated with the slow process of implementing rules for high-volume oil and gas drilling are putting their money behind Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner.

The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises reports that the Winnetka businessman received nearly $240,000 from oil company officials looking to get the process up and running during a July 9 fundraiser in Mt. Vernon.

Most of those funds come from companies who want the permit process to be up and running as soon as possible.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation last year which authorized the process commonly known as fracking, which uses a high-pressure mixture of water, sand and chemicals to crack and hold open thick rock formations, releasing trapped oil and gas. But the Department of Natural Resources has spent months holding hearings and gathering more than 30,000 comments on the best way to regulate the drilling method.

Mount Vernon-based oil producer Nelson Wood co-hosted the July 9 fundraiser.

He said the state is being "held back" from an economic surge that oil booms have created in other states.

"We have the potential for the same thing to happen in Illinois," Wood said, adding "some people have already left."

The flood of donations to Rauner from fracking industry officials come as the Department of Natural Resources is expected to submit proposed fracking rules to the Illinois Legislature's Joint Committee on Administrative Rules Friday.

The 12-member panel has 45 days to sign off on the suggested rules, change them or prohibit their filing.

The department faces a Nov. 15 deadline for the rules to be established.
