State Farm is keeping the move quiet so as not to alarm employees. But the Dallas Morning News reports that it is a “major business relocation” already underway and that this is “one of the biggest stories in the Dallas-area real estate market and will ultimately involve thousands of workers.”

I wouldn't blame them. They know full well whats coming down the pike. Il. is bankrupt, raising fees, taxes and just about any thing else they can to raise funds.

This is a major blow to Il. as it employs 15,000 local employees at it's headquarters.
