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.
