78 Ways Illinois’ $45 Billion Infrastructure Plan Helps the Rockford Area
Governor J.B. Pritzker signed the plan in June and it will fund projects around Illinois for the next half-dozen years.
This $45 billion infrastructure plan is being paid for by the gas tax in July, increases of other fees for things like license plates and a massive gambling expansion.
Changes are coming for highways, roads and bridges, schools and universities, cultural and community centers, hospitals, parks and museums, and much more, as you'll see in the list provided by chicagotribune.com.
