The state of Illinois has a lot of stuff to get rid of.
And you don't have to come to Springfield to get it.
Items the state typically sells as surplus six times a year at traditional auctions will also be offered on the Internet. Department of Central Management Services officials hope that increases the 75-thousand dollars such auctions typically bring in.
About 100 items in the auction that begins Wednesday will be offered simultaneously at a site in Springfield and on w-w-w-dot-bidspotter-dot-com.
Items for sale include former police cruisers, digital cameras, computers and microwaves. Offbeat items include a boa constrictor cage, a 1958 military painting, and several tennis ball throwers.
