Senate sends Quinn DePaul Arena, McCormick Place bill
The Illinois Senate today sent a bill to Gov. Pat Quinn that will green-light Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s plan for McCormick Place expansion that includes a new DePaul University basketball arena and a hotel.
The legislation also includes provision to continue efforts to build a third Chicago airport near Peotone and incentives to construct a Downstate fertilizer plant. The Senate voted 38-17 to pass the bill, which also would allow Rosemont to use $5 million in money it currently gets to encourage convention business to pay for bonds to redo its convention center.
