IL Lawmakers: Tax-break deals need more scrutiny

Monday, 04 November 2013 01:59 Published in Local News

   SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) - Once again Illinois lawmakers are considering a list of tax breaks and other incentives to keep some companies in the state and attract others.

   The most widely publicized proposal is a $24 million tax break aimed at persuading Archer Daniels Midland Company to keep its new global headquarters in Illinois.

   Legislators at this week's fall session in Springfield also could be asked for a tax break to retain the company that emerges from a merger between OfficeMax Inc. of Naperville and Office Depot Inc., among others.

   Some lawmakers say the state's bad finances make timing difficult for new such breaks.

   Others say the state needs to take a harder look and adopt a more comprehensive way to scrutinize such incentives in the future.

 

St. Louis Archdiocese bars alcohol at youth events

Thursday, 31 October 2013 04:09 Published in Local News

   The Archdiocese of St. Louis is banning alcohol at events aimed at minors, like youth soccer and softball games.  A group of clergy had unanimously approved the new rule last month (September).

   In a letter to parishioners last week, Archbishop Robert Carlson wrote that alcohol at games or other events directed toward minors "is not to be served to anyone or brought in by someone."  The new rule takes effect Friday. 

   Some athletic associations are expected to lose revenue as concession stand beer sales are prohibited.   But one member of the clergy group that approved the change told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that alcohol sales were already discouraged and many parishes already barred it, so the change just makes the parishes consistent.
