The proposed Tenaska coal to natural gas facility will come up for a vote again this week during the Illinois legislature’s Fall veto session. The project would mean hundreds of jobs for Christian County. But there are powerful forces working against Tenaska. Taylorville Mayor Greg Brotherton says he hopes the legislators have a clear picture of the issues at stake.

The project came up for a vote in the legislature last year, passing the House but falling five votes short in the Senate. The Mayor made those comments on the Monday edition of “The WTIM Open Line”.
