Bill Would Create Fair Grounds Foundation to Solicit Private Funds For Repairs


A proposal to create a foundation to help generate funds for much needed repairs to the Illinois State Fair grounds could generate money from private donations quicker than getting money from the state.

 

That's according to a bill filed by State Senator Andy Manar.

 

The State Journal-Register reports the proposed 12-member board of directors would solicit private funds from businesses and individuals as a way to make repairs to the aging fairgrounds, not just in Springfield but also DuQuoin.

 

The bill could be up for passage in the State Senate this coming week.
