SPRINGFIELD, IL – It took more than six years of
negotiations, but State Sen. Pamela Althoff (R-McHenry) says lawmakers are
nearing agreement on a statewide capital construction plan. The bipartisan
agreement would channel about $30 billion into Illinois roads, bridges and infrastructure,
when federal assistance is factored in.
“Getting here has been a long, tough process, but I’m very hopeful we are seeing the light and the end of the tunnel,” Althoff said. “There is wide and bipartisan consensus that the time to pass a capital plan is now, and that delaying it for another year just isn’t an option.”" /> Skip to Main Content
