Illinois wants President Obama’s museum and library in Chicago so badly that lawmakers are set to devote as much as $100 million in state funds to securing the project.

An Illinois House committee on Thursday unanimously voted in favor of the $100 million expense, the Associated Press reported. The full legislature would still need to approve, and it’s not clear yet where the money would come from — or what effect using the funds for the museum and library would have on other items in the budget.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said $100 million is nothing compared to the revenue and tourist dollars the museum and library would generate, AP reported.
