Funding big concern for Illinois State Fair

Posted:

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) - Funding continues to be a concern for the Illinois State Fair.

Two years ago, Governor Bruce Rauner started a foundation to help raise $185 million to help take care of a maintenance program.

The foundation's goal is to raise about $2 million a year, but that has yet to happen.

The latest report shows the foundation only raised $32,000.
