Scherer Still Pressing For ADM Tax Credit Vote


A local lawmaker is still hoping for action on a bill that would give tax credits to a major Decatur employer… but acknowledges she’s concerned that time could run out before that vote is taken. 

 

Democrat Sue Scherer says the House should follow the Senate’s lead and approve the credits for Archer Daniels Midland, in exchange for a commitment from the agribusiness company to add more jobs to its Decatur operations.  But House Speaker Mike Madigan has recently criticized what he calls “tax giveaways.” 

 

Scherer says this bill is different and she hopes Madigan will allow a vote… and that ADM will wait a while longer before pulling the plug on the idea.
