By  | 

Gov. Rod Blagojevich came to Loves Park Wednesday to detail his plans to revive the region's economy.

During a visit to a Loves Park factory, the governor outlined a number of programs to help manufacturers, including a $25 million revolving loan fund.

The loans will help manufacturers replace outdated equipment. More grants and training programs are another component of the governor's plan and local labor leaders say it's all good news.
