What a stupid idea. It may create jobs to construct it, but when it's finished, the jobs are gone. And there will be no employees because there will be no air planes. They have said they are not going to come. They do not have any airlines lined up to come to this lame idea. And wouldn't this money be better served by putting into the pension fund or education? This is one f'ed up state.

Ridiculous....absolutely no airline is supporting this. Pandering to us here on the "poor" south suburbs, I am greatly insulted. Build your damn airport on the south side of Chicago, we don't want it here!

The south suburbs can benefit from all the freight traffic that can come out of that airport. The surrounding area can grow and develop jobs in manufacturing and transportation. We have numerous rail lines like the UP, CN, and CSX to serve the airport and surrounding communities. Plus, major trucking hubs. Plus, the local towns can benefit from the added tax revenue. I want it to here. I wish it didn't take this long.
