Two state fair managers took scores of free beer tickets to use at annual events, violating a ban on accepting gifts, according to an Illinois inspector general's report released Monday.
Illinois State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick accepted at least 120 beer tickets from a vendor at the fair in Springfield last year — a market value of $540 — which she distributed to Department of Agriculture officials, members of her staff, volunteers and fairgoers, Meza said.
Nothing in the vendors' contracts obligated them to provide the free tickets, the report noted, and both employees took part in the annual training that covers the law that prohibits government employees from soliciting or accepting gifts from those doing business or seeking to do business with the state.
Rednour, reached at his office at the Du Quoin State Bank, described the practice as "something that's been done for years" and said he often sent the tickets to radio stations to give to listeners and sponsors.
In a victory for airlines and their workers' unions, the House rejected consumers' complaints and passed legislation Monday letting airline advertising emphasize the base price of tickets, before taxes and fees are added.
Groups representing airline passengers and companies that frequently rely on corporate travel say the bill's enactment would return the country to an earlier era of misleading and confusing advertising.
 the airlines — backed by unions representing pilots, mechanics and flight attendants — say including taxes and fees in their advertised prices hurts business and hides from consumers the extra costs that government imposes on air travel.
"The rule effectively masks, I would argue hides, the current government-imposed taxes and fees on consumers," Rep.
Oregon Health & Science University says it's closer to matching Nike co-founder Phil Knight's challenge for cancer research with the help of a new $100 million donation.
The school plans to build two buildings on its South Waterfront campus — one dedicated entirely to the research, and another where several floors will house clinical trials.
The school has launched an international search for the key recruit — the scientist that will lead the research program.
