President, Nancy Pelosi Coming To Chicago
President Obama and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi are coming to Illinois. They'll be in Chicago on May 29th for two fundraisers for House Democrats. Tickets to the fundraisers start at one-thousand-dollars.
IL Drivers Paying Higher For Gas This Spring
The price of gasoline continues to rise for drivers across the state. According to Triple-A, drivers nationwide are paying the lowest springtime gas prices in three-years. That's discouraging news for Illinoisans as the average price here has risen to 3.91 per-gallon, the third-highest in the nation. Chicago drivers are charged even more, with an average price of 4.32 per-gallon.
Union To Take Second Vote On Contract Deal
Union workers could soon vote to reject a recent contract with the state. AFSCME reps say the workers originally approved the deal thinking the state would drop an appeal against a court ruling ordering Governor Quinn to dish out millions of dollars in back-pay. Quinn has asked Attorney
General Lisa Madigan to drop the suit but union leaders say she's refused. State workers will complete the second round of voting in the next few weeks and if they refuse to re-approve the deal, they may be back at the bargaining table.
IL Consumer Confidence Grows
Good news for Illinois retailers - consumer confidence is on the upswing. The Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index finds that for the third straight month, Illinois consumer confidence increased, this time by two points to 69.3. April's consumer confidence was higher across the nation. However, Illinois' confidence number remains well-below the 90-point minimum used to gauge what experts consider a "healthy economy."
