NATION IN BRIEF : ILLINOIS : Governor, Mayor Agree on Airport

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Illinois officials agreed on a site for a $10.8-billion regional airport that would mean a financial boost to Chicago's Southeast Side and ease traffic at O'Hare International Airport. The agreement between Illinois Gov. Jim Edgar and Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley should give the site straddling the Indiana-Illinois line near Lake Calumet the edge because the two control seven of 11 votes on a two-state commission that is scheduled to choose Monday.
