More Money For Construction



$5.3 million will be coming to the area in the form of construction work.
 
Governor Pat Quinn made a stop in Marion Sunday to announce the fourth installment of money from the Illinois Jobs Now! Program, a program meant to spur the growth of construction jobs.

Quinn says its important to keep infrastructure updated for the safety and wellbeing of commuters in southern Illinois.
 
But Quinn says the money isn’t just about construction, it’s also about improving medical care.

“We have to understand that our emergency vehicles, like our ambulances, anything we can do to speed up their journey from the home to a hospital or healthcare center, that's real important towards saving lives.”
 
Quinn honored Goebel Patton, the first superintendent for the West Frankfort Unit 168 School District. Patton turns 100-years-old later this month.

Quinn visitied Harrisburg later in the day Sunday to survey the recovery after the Leap Day Tornado in 2012. Illinois invested almost $9 million into the recovery.
