Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner has consistently praised and denigrated the business climate in the state at the same time. The expansion of the food manufacturing company Richelieu Foods into Wheeling garnered the same mixed reaction.
“Too often, when we have a good announcement, we also have some announcements of folks leaving or moving to another state,” Rauner said on Tuesday, September 6. He was commenting on the state of Illinois’ business atmosphere, which he notes is at a steady decline because many companies opt to take their business elsewhere because of the high cost of workers’ compensation insurance in the state.
