Illinois' Top Republicans Dissapointed In End of Future Gen
Illinois' top two Republicans say they're disappointed the Federal government has halted funding for the future gen project in the region.
Governor Bruce Rauner and U.S. Senator Mark Kirk released a statement on the public-private coal project at Meredosia.
They say the Fed's decision will block advancements in so called "clean coal" efforts and bringing jobs to the region. The two say they won't give up on the technology and bringing new jobs to the state.
