Indiana governor disputes report on persuading CME Group to move
Ind. Gov. Mitch Daniels is disputing a report that his office is luring a Chicago-based company across the state border.
Crain's Chicago Business reports the Republican governor is offering the CME Group $150 million to move its headquarters to Indiana.
Daniels would not comment on his efforts to move the CME Group, but he denies the information came from his office.
"Anybody who might be looking at bringing jobs to our state, we respect their confidence and it would hurt our chances if we ever spoke openly before an agreement was reached," Daniels told WBEZ by phone on Friday.
Indiana has been advertising in Illinois to try to persuade businesses to move after Illinois raised the personal income and corporate tax earlier this year.
