Kudos to Mike Hughlett of the Trib for following up on yesterday's exciting and self-affirming brewhaha and detailing where exactly our $20 million in state and local "assistance" to MillerCoors is coming from.

"The city has offered assistance to MillerCoors in the form of tax-increment financing. The exact amount hasn't been determined, but Rita Athas, executive director of World Business Chicago, the city's economic development office, said it would likely be $2.5 million to $5 million."

FYI, MillerCoors is considering the blighted regions of the Carson Pirie Scott building and 250 W. Wacker, among other places. As always, your best TIF primer is here.
