Governor to give plan addressing drought
WALTONVILLE, Ill. — Gov. Pat Quinn plans to release details of a plan to address Illinois' drought.
Quinn is scheduled to visit the farm of James Laird in the southern Illinois community of Waltonville on Monday.
The Illinois Farm Bureau says it's the six driest year on record so far. The average precipitation of the first half of the year was 12.6 inches. Much of Illinois' corn and soybean crop is suffering. Farm officials say southern Illinois is getting the worst of it.
