SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Two state senators say Illinois needs another Big Ten Conference school.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports a bill has been introduced by Lisle Republican Michael Connelly and Palatine Republican Matt Murphy.
 
The two say their measure would study what's needed for a public university in the state to join the conference that already includes Northwestern and the University of Illinois.
 
Connelly says tight admissions policies at Illinois mean some students who want to attend a large state school in a marquee athletics conference look to other states such as Indiana and Iowa.
 
The 12-team conference is set to expand to include 14 schools next year. New members need support from at least 70 percent of schools to join.
 
 A conference spokesman declined to comment on the Illinois bill.

OREGON, Mo. (AP) - Construction is expected to begin later this year on a wind farm in northwest Missouri.
 
Element Power officials say the operation near Oregon in Holt County will be the largest wind farm in the state. It will generate 200 megawatts of electricity at the Mill Creek Wind Farm. The power will be sold the Kansas City Power & Light.
 
The St. Joseph News-Press reports if construction goes as scheduled, the wind farm is expected to begin operating by the end of 2015.
 
Scott Zeimetz, project manager for Element Power, says the company has not yet determined the size or number of turbines it will install on the farm.
 
Construction will create 300 jobs, with 12 to 14 permanent full-time jobs available when the wind farm is operating.
