STATE FAIR FOUNDATION BILL ON THE ROCKS

Republican lawmakers are not confident that legislation to create a private organization to raise repair funds for the Illinois State Fairgrounds will pass this session. Sen. Bill Brady, who is sponsoring a bill in the Senate that would establish the foundation, said he lacks support from Democrats, who are hearing complaints from unions.  As an alternative, Brady said he may consider working with Gov. Rauner to set up a not-for-profit organization through executive order to raise private funds,  Gatehouse News reports .
