Today, June 16, 2011, Governor Pat Quinn finally passed a law which helps the Illinois residents. He signed legislation, which beefed up the current law, banning state politicians from promoting themselves by putting their names on state signs. Adding their names to these signs cost taxpayers a whopping $480,000 to erect.
It is about time they figured out this was a waste of money, especially with the recent wave of turnover’s in Illinois politicians. Removing the name of ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich was Governor Quinn’s first task when taking office. It would have probably not been the last, so good they finally changed this policy. How much did it cost to replace the names?
Did we really need to be reminded who our Governor was every time we paid a darn toll? It was just good our Governor was not Weiner, that would have been a bit too fitting at a toll booth.
