Rauner's Budget News Conference Features Chicken Coop

After weeks of taking heat for failing to offer his own budget plan, Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner has laid out a proposal for cuts… but it’s not doing much to silence his critics.


Rauner held a news conference in Chicago which featured a coop of live chickens… in reference to a recent news story about endangered prairie chickens being transported on state-owned airplanes.


Rauner says he would eliminate the state’s airplane fleet… reduce legislative pensions… and cut half-a-billion dollars from Central Management Services.


Governor Pat Quinn’s camp says the plan shows how little Rauner knows about how state government works.
