Republicans are signaling that a massive rebuilding package, which has long been one of Trump’s top priorities, will most likely have to wait on the sidelines until lawmakersoverhaul the tax code. 

But with that process likely to be just as time-consuming and daunting as healthcare, infrastructure could be pushed to the back burner.

Amazon plans Crest Hill sort center with up to 500 jobs

Author: Editor

Amazon is opening a Chicago-area sort center, its first Illinois hub for smaller packages, where it plans to employ 250 to 500 workers. 

The newest facility, to handle parcels smaller than many it moves through distribution centers in Joliet and several other local sites, has a launch scheduled for October in southwest suburban Crest Hill. It's the latest flag planted here since 2015 by the e-commerce monolith, whose projected local employment is heading toward around 8,000.
