Springfield, IL-(ENEWSPF)- House Republican Leader Jim Durkin released a statement on the Democratic bill to sell the Thompson Center, calling it an attempted “money grab” for Chicago and a “bad deal for the taxpayers.”

The statement follows:

“The Democratic bill to sell the James R. Thompson Center is another attempted money grab by the City of Chicago and a bad deal for the taxpayers of Illinois. The James R. Thompson Center was built with state taxpayer money and is owned by the State of Illinois – not the City of Chicago. Our first obligation should be to negotiate a deal that maximizes proceeds to benefit the State of Illinois. The bill that passed the House tonight takes care of Chicago at the expense of all other Illinois taxpayers.”
