DECATUR -- The state's economy could see a boost in the coming months. Governor Quinn has agreed to extend enterprise zones.

They'll allow cities to offer various incentives to lure in more businesses. The move is already paying off companies like ADM which is getting ready to expand.

The enterprise zone program has created more than 300,000 jobs in 30 years.
