Most Units of Government

Updated: Friday, November 15 2013, 04:49 PM CST

According to a new report from the Illinois Policy Institute, Illinois has the most units of government over any other state in the nation.

The organization says the state has more than 6,900 local government agencies.

Texas is next in line with 5,100 local government agencies.

The IPI says the state's high number of agencies is resulting in duplication of services and high local taxes, creating barriers to taxpayers in holding those government agencies responsible.
