Better Government Association Approves Some Bills Passed By Legislature
As lawmakers focus on their next election some of the work in this past session is being applauded.
The watch dog group The Better Government Association says that while a comprehensive budget deal was not reached, lawmakers did accomplish a lot of what they call good government reforms.
The group says there were more than 20 different bills that passed that they would like to see Governor Rauner sign into law.
Plans like automatic voter registration, government streamlining and ethics bills were some of the plans the BGA highlighted.
They says that although the budget has taken center stage these reforms could save the taxpayers money and make government more efficient.
Governor Rauner has already signed some of the legislation into law.
BGA say they will continue to lobby for the remaining pieces and will keep working to get the rest of their agenda passed.
