GOVERNOR BRUCE RAUNER SIGNED A GOVERNMENT CONSOLIDATION LAW THIS WEEK…BUT SAYS ILLINOIS NEEDS MORE. 
 
THE LAW LETS SOME COUNTY CLERK OFFICES TAKE ON DUTIES OF THE LOCAL ELECTION COMMISSION. GOVERNOR RAUNER SAYS IT’S A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION BUT REMINDS THAT ILLINOIS STILL HAS MORE UNITS OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT THAN ANY OTHER STATE IN THE NATION.

 

 
RAUNER SAYS IF ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE STATE’S LOCAL GOVERNMENT CONSOLIDATION TASK FORCE WERE IMPLEMENTED…IT WOULD SAVE TAXPAYERS AN ESTIMATED THREE AND A HALF BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR.
