Tax Break Deal to Keep ADM's Global HQ in Illinois Includes Jobs for Decatur

A proposed deal over a tax break for Archer Daniels Midland aims to ensure that Decatur gets some jobs to make up for the ones that ADM plans to move to Chicago.


The agribusiness giant plans to move its global headquarters out of Decatur…and sought the tax break in exchange for keeping those jobs in Illinois.


State Senator Andy Manar has introduced legislation that would provide that break… but would also require ADM to move at least 100 jobs from out of state into Decatur, and to create at least 100 more jobs there as well.


The move is intended to cushion the blow on a city with the highest unemployment rate in the state.
