Finally, a Judge in Chicago Stands up against the System. Kills the new Public Works Program
[link to chicagobreakingbusiness.com]

An appellate court tossed out Gov. Pat Quinn’s signature $31 billion construction program, widespread plans for video poker and higher taxes on candy and booze, declaring Wednesday in a ruling that they were unconstitutional.

The justices ruled the problem with the law is that it violated the state’s basic constitutional tenet that legislation must address a single subject only. They wrote that wide-ranging issues in one of four bills passed in 2009 failed to have a “natural and logical connection.”

The decision knocked out all four laws that represented the backbone of the public works program Quinn put together with bipartisan support two years ago. It was the culmination of an effort with legislative leaders who had found working with former Gov. Rod Blagojevich futile.

The decision brought immediate reaction from lawmakers.

“Obviously, an opinion of this apparent magnitude will require careful and detailed review to determine its impact,” said Patty Schuh, spokeswoman for Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont). “We are undergoing that process now. In addition, we will work in concert with the other caucuses of the General Assembly, the governor’s office and the office of the attorney general as they review the opinion and its impact on Illinois’ infrastructure program.”
It really is!
