VILLA PARK - The Better Government Association joined Senator Tom Cullerton in urging Governor Rauner to sign Cullerton's government efficiency bill. The legislation, SB2994, directs Illinois counties to prepare a report for the General Assembly listing units of local government to be cut or consolidated. "Illinois has over 7,000 units of local government, many of which were developed at a time when counties had vastly different administrative needs and expectations," said Cullerton. "Many of these jurisdictions are redundant, wasteful, and inefficient. Cutting and consolidating units of local government is one of the most important steps towards solving the state's financial crisis."
