Kinda called it on this one, but it wasn’t hard to foresee since it is the Illinois way. Stall, obfuscate, ask for more hearings, rinse, repeat as needed until the deadline has passed. Then act surprised that nothing has been done and begin the process again while asking for more time. Over and over and over. They act like kids. Ignore it long enough and it goes away or everyone forgets. Don’t think this one will go away.
The dem side is spending govt money. They figure if they stall long enough, the other side will run out of funding.
