The St. Louis based moving company United Van Lines is reporting that Illinois leads the nation alongside New Jersey with the nations highest move out rates.
United Van Lines spokeswoman, Melissa Sullivan told CBS affiliate KMOX in St. Louis, 60.5% of their business comes from individuals and businesses leaving Illinois. She also said, “Illinois has seen more outbound movement every year since” they have been keeping track, beginning in 1977.
The study shows Washington, D.C., the Carolinas, Arkansas, Texas, Oregon and Nevada leading the country with newly inbound residents, and more people moving away from the northeast.
Perhaps Illinoisans are finally fed up with the rampant corruption and abuse of those who hold the power in their state. On Wednesday, the state general assembly swore in three legislators currently facing criminal charges.
