lllinois’ to-be governor could find most of his success at the state capitol outside of the legislative chambers.
Republican state Senator Jason Barickman says governor-elect Bruce Rauner has had success managing private businesses. Barickman expects the same Rauner as governor.
Barickman says governor-elect Bruce Rauner could manage state government, and find millions of dollars in savings.
Barickman says Rauner would be the first governor since Jim Edgar to take an active role in managing the bureaucracy of state government.
Rauner takes the oath of office next Monday.
