State Senator Craig Wilcox (R-McHenry) applauded Gov. Rauner for taking amendatory veto action on House Bill 4637—a measure that would have allowed for the abolishment of townships in McHenry County, but could leave taxpayers potentially subject to debt transfers or abuse of liquidating assets for county-wide motives.
As Senate Republicans, our goal is to encourage job growth by
developing an efficient, transparent, ethical state government
with less regulation and lower taxes. We must leave a legacy of
responsible government that will last for generations.
