Museum Costs are Questioned

Museum Costs are Questioned. Agreeing to build the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum was an easy decision. Getting it paid for is another matter...

I have not been posting much lately. I have been ill and I hope to get back on a regular schedule soon.

From the site:

The Illinois Capital Development Board has budgeted $500,000 to determine if the state is owed money from any of the contractors who worked on the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.

The state could challenge as much as $15 million in spending as a result of its re-examination of the $150 million project, officials said.

Several years in the works and a couple years past deadline, the library and museum hit many snags on the way toward completion. Two parts of the project - renovation of Union Station and a new park - still are in development.
