Illinois Considers Selling Name

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) "is considering selling, to a yet-unchosen beverage company, the rights to Illinois' name," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "No other state has ever done it."

"The concept of designating an 'official state beverage' could bring in millions of dollars to Illinois' cash-strapped state budget, as soft-drink companies compete -- and pay -- for the right to hawk their soda, juice or other beverage under Illinois' state banner."
