Manar Happy ADM Is Keeping HQ In Illinois, But Disappointed At Lost Chance To Bring More Jobs To Decatur


State Senator Andy Manar says Archer Daniels Midland’s decision to keep its global headquarters in Illinois is good for the state and even good for Decatur… but not as good as the tax incentive deal he tried to put together for the company. 

 

ADM has announced that it will move the global operations to Chicago… rather than out-of-state… and will do so without receiving any tax credits.  But because Manar’s tax package was not called for a vote in the House, ADM won’t add jobs in Decatur to replace those lost in the move. 

 

Manar says the state needs to do more to help areas like Decatur, with the highest unemployment rate in the state.
