Natural Gas Tax Elimination Won’t Draw Business

That's not Governor Pat Quinn blowing smoke out of this car. He rides in a limo now.

Either Governor Pat Quinn

  • doesn’t know what he is talking about with regard to the appeal to business that ending the state tax on natural gas or
  • he’s just blowing smoke.

In 1986, in my last bureaucratic job with state government, I put together the program to buy natural gas directly.

Manufacturers, big institutions, school districts, churches, retail chains and about anybody with a brain was already doing so.

By the way, I earned by $40,000-something salary that year. The program save over $1 million.
