An appellate court today ruled that Gov. Quinn's capital construction plan was unconstitutional.
From the Tribune:
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 state had planned to use proceeds from video poker and higher taxes on booze and candy to fund the $31 billion program.
The CTA already was slated to get $253 million this year of a promised $1.3 billion.
