Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will not allow $30 billion in state construction funds to be spent until lawmakers agree on how to generate more revenue for the state. The decision will lead to more uncertainty for a project to build a waterfront campus for Western Illinois University. Other affected projects include a $1 million energy efficiency project at Black Hawk College. Another $48 million -- meant for highway upgrades -- is also being held up.
