ILLINOIS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Illinois' Dilemma: Billions In Capital Needs, But Prospects Dim For Funding Plan

The huge price tag is partly the result of years of deferred maintenance on buildings and years of not having sufficient money to adequately maintain the state's transportation system, said the report from the Illinois Economic Policy Institute.
