The Chicago Tribune reports that passenger service to and from Chicago has some movement.
The article says that the carrier–Metra or Amtrak–has not yet been decided.
If Metra, presumably Boone and Winnebago County residents would have to agree to pay the same one percent sales tax as all the other counties in the Regional Transportation Authority.
Somehow, I doubt voters would approve such a referendum, so maybe Democrats in Springfield will pass legislation exempting such a tax.
That, of course, would result in residents of Cook, DuPage, Lake, Kane, Will and McHenry County subsidizing Boone and Winnebago Counties.
