More on a flap over State Farm headquarters. The offices of both Sen. Dick Durbin and Gov. Pat Quinn said they had been in touch with State Farm about the company's plans and have been reassured. That comes after a speculative piece in an on line publication last week. State Farm's plans to add significant office space in Dallas, Atlanta and Phoenix made some Illinois leaders curious about the company's intentions. But the insurance firm says it has no plans to leave its Bloomington headquarters. State Farm employs 15,000 people in Bloomington. Spokeswoman Holly Anderson wouldn't say whether the company is hiring new employees in the three Sun Belt cities or moving workers from other locations.
