"The bill has not yet arrived on the Governor’s desk"




    "The bill has not yet arrived on the Governor’s desk."

    That's Annie Thompson., Gov. Quinn's press secretary, on the McPier bill, which Quinn said today he was still doing "due diligence" on. Thompson's words were fresh as of this afternoon, so no blaming Quinn yet for putting a stopdown on the legislation.

    "I'm doing the due diligence that's necessary to make sure we get the right law passed," Quinn said earlier Monday. "We had at Metra a serious problem of embezzlement I guess you'd call it. And we sure don't want that to happen at McCormick Place, or McPier, or anywhere else."
