Broke Illinois Still Decorating Capitol For Holidays
Even though the state of Illinois is broke, they are still going to put up holiday lights on the Capitol building.
Most people enjoy the holidays. I was driving downtown on East State Street over the weekend and it looked great with all the decorations.
According to the State Journal-Register,
"The state will pay for holiday lights to go up on the Capitol building this year."
When I saw the news, I thought that's great. Then I learned something else.
"The state owes the city for water, light, and power about $5.5 million for its bills past due beyond 60 days."
Maybe they should pass on the lights this year.
I know at my house if I still owed a bunch of money for bills, I wouldn't be putting up any holiday lights.
I wonder if it's too late to enroll our state officials into an Economics class at Rock Valley College for the Spring semester?
