Illinois Waiting On Legal Decision To Sell State Fair Naming Rights 

(Springfield, IL)  —  The Illinois State Fair’s private foundation wants to sell the naming rights to the Illinois State Fair.  The only hold up is a question of whether the Legislature makes that call.  The Illinois Fairgrounds Foundation yesterday said they are waiting on lawyers to give them some guidance about how to move forward.  The private foundation hopes to raise money for badly needed upgrades at the Fairground by selling sponsorships and naming rights.  But there’s a question about the process to make that happen.
