CHICAGO – Want to be No. 1? Well, you could soon get that chance.
Gov. Pat Quinn is considering a plan to sell the coveted No. 1 Illinois license plate to the highest bidder.
A Quinn spokeswoman told the Chicago Sun-Times that the governor thinks the plate could be a source of revenue for veterans’ assistance programs. Spokeswoman Brooke Anderson said the cash raised could help homeless veterans, those with post-traumatic stress syndrome or those needing jobs and health care.
