Illinois voters this fall will have a chance to amend the state constitution. The governor refuses to say whether he supports the change.
Illinois has gotten into the habit of using money that was supposed to be used to fill pot holes, and instead using it to fill holes in the budget.
Road contractors and construction workers got sick of it, so they came up with an idea. Put road money in a sort of "lock box." Amend the constitution so it has to be used on transportation needs, and nothing else.
