Illinois Governor Pat Quinn today signed a law that moves forward plans for a third major Chicago-area airport. The new law lets the Illinois Department of Transportation enter into a public-private partnership for the development, construction and operation of a south suburban airport in Will County and will allow the state to spend about 71-million dollars on land acquisition near Peotone. The state is still awaiting approval from the Federal Aviation Administration on a master plan for the proposed airport.
