SPRINGFIELD—(ENEWSPF)—March 27, 2017. Statement from Illinois House Speaker Michael J. Madigan regarding Gov. Bruce Rauner’s proposal to privatize a toll lane on I-55:
“Where possible, we have been willing to work with the governor on various parts of his agenda this spring, including the sale of the Thompson Center in Chicago and the reorganization he wants to do within state government. Our concern with private investors being involved in a toll lane is that, once again, it seems as though Governor Rauner is more interested in helping his wealthy friends. Despite multiple requests for information over several months, IDOT hasn’t prepared a plan that would lay out the costs, results and anticipated tolls. IDOT hasn’t provided any evidence demonstrating that this project will save taxpayer dollars or result in better maintained roads. We continue to await this information.”
