Possible New Fertilizer Plant For Tuscola

The Illinois House is set to take up a bill to offer tax breaks to a company that may build a fertilizer plant in Tuscola. 

Legislators estimate a $315 million annualized impact in the six county economic region that includes Douglas and Champaign Counties.

Officials noted that the fertilizer plant wouldn’t use the same chemicals that caused last week’s deadly explosion in Texas.

The company overseeing the plant is mulling over whether to build it in Illinois or Iowa.

There would be about 2,000 short-term construction jobs created, and roughly 150 permanent positions once the plant is up and running in about three years.
