Looking to lose Lt. Governor position

News

ILLINOIS — The Lt. Governor position could be on the chopping block. Lawmakers say eliminating the position will save taxpayers an estimated $1.5 million annually.

The bill would go into effect beginning in 2019. Many lawmakers agree the cut would be a step in the right direction.

But some say eliminating the role could cause political confusion when it comes to succession. A spokesperson for the Office of Lt. Governor Sanguinetti says consolidating within her office is a better solution.
