The Governor has long sought to sell the hub of state government in Chicago. Bruce Rauner wants to sell the Thompson Center and get the state out of the business of owning expensive real estate and trying to keep up what is now seen as a crumbing building.




House Speaker Mike Madigan says a house committee will take up the proposal. The Governor says after selling the building that existing state workers would move to less expensive real estate in Chicago.
