Road Projects and DCFS Investigators Get Funds, GOP Says Bill Full of Pork


A massive supplemental spending bill will clear the way for more road projects… and more jobs this spring, and will keep child abuse investigators on the job.

 

But some Republicans complain that the nearly $2 billion bill goes too far and is loaded down with unnecessary pork.

 

The General Assembly passed the bill one day after Governor Pat Quinn urged them to do so in his State of the State speech.

 

Much of the money comes from an influx of federal dollars, or the reallocation of savings from Quinn’s facility closures last year.

 

But GOP lawmakers say there were other special projects added in to win votes.
