Maybe it is time for the ATA to make that statement !!! And leave this crap hole state. And yes I live here, Hopefully not much longer, have a home in FL and think it is time to become a FL resident .Article is fine with the exception of the comment that if the A.T.A goes to another State it probably won't come back to Sparta . Nice bluff but not a comment the A.T.A would make !
Most of these people can take a simple situation and twist it into the most complicated political mess you can get into.It is hard to see in the article due to a link in the way, but that line about leaving and not coming back came from Representative Schimpf. I suppose that was his interpretation of a discussion he had with the ATA or he took it upon himself to play hardball.
He may not be referring to actual news sources as you're thinking. There's a bunch on this site that can make a mountain out of a mole hill.To George MT - Your comment about fake news is out of line. the article did not say "the ATA said". I do not understand why you cannot relate to the lawmakers of southern Illinois trying to apply as much pressure as they can and anyway they can.
