( KTRS ) Gov. Bruce Rauner has repeatedly pledged to save taxpayers money by eliminating some of Illinois’ nearly 7,000 units of government.
A task force the Republican governor named to put that idea in motion, is preparing its final recommendations.Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti, the commission’s chairwoman, says its suggestions could make government more efficient and effective if the Legislature and Rauner choose to implement them.
Some commission members say the year-long process is being tainted by a push to include anti-union provisions that are among Rauner’s top priorities.
