Illinois Comes Out on Short End of Military Pork

No surprise there. We just don’t have a lot of bases.

We grow corn to feed pigs.

Just four projects:

Defense-Wide $13,977,000 Costello, Durbin, The President – Scott AFB, USTRANSCOM Joint Intel Operations Center

Navy $62,940,000 Durbin, The President – Great Lakes, RTC Special Programs Barracks

Army NG $16,186,000 Durbin – Urban Armory Readiness Center

Air NG $400,000 LaHood, Durbin – C-130 Squadron Operations Center, Greater Peoria Airport
