Gov. OKs eliminating dozens of boards, commissions
CHICAGO (AP) — Gov. Pat Quinn eliminated dozens of state boards and commissions on Friday that he said were redundant or obsolete, arguing that the move will make state government more efficient. But questions remain on whether his decision will result in significant savings to taxpayers.
Quinn's executive order lists 75 panels that have been dormant, redundant or have completed their original missions.
"While there are many essential boards and commissions that perform important duties for our taxpayers, there are also many which are no longer needed," Quinn said in a statement after he issued the order.
