Mechanics has been pretty quiet lately, likely because of the post-special-election-hangover, but the show must go on. So here's this tidbit about the stimulus money that the Land-o-Lincoln is gonna get (via CTA Tattler):
Meanwhile, the Government Accountability Office has named Illinois as one of the states it will be auditing and closely watching how it spends the $22.7 billion it is expected to receive in stimulus funding and tax cuts, Crain's Business reports.
And who can blame them? First, the state is set to receive the sixth-highest amount overall. Not to mention the fact it has been the laughingstock of the nation in the past few months with an impeached and ousted governor and a new senator under federal scrutiny about how he got his job.
No argument here.
