New Illinois law aims to preserve schools' histories & create more jobs

Illinois - A new state law is good news for old and historic schools across Illinois.

It allows school districts to decide whether to replace aging buildings, or rehabilitate them. In the past, they have had no choice but to replace them.

Supporters say this will allow districts to preserve buildings that have either historical or architectural significance, instead of destroying them. They also point to two benefits. One, the rehab process is more environmentally friendly. And two, they say reconstructing an existing building is more labor intensive, and will therefore create more local jobs.
