  • Daily Herald-Tollway watchdog finds thefts, employees wasting time, “Meanwhile, a State Board of Education report on school consolidation raises questions about Quinn’s approach, and key lawmakers reject the idea that the Chicago Democrat even has a plan they should consider.”
  • (Gatehouse News Service) Peoria Journal Star- Senate votes to eliminate treasurer and comptroller offices, “The proposed constitutional amendment now goes to the House, where it must receive a three-fifths majority to pass. If it passes, it will be on the ballot for voters to decide upon in the November 2012 election.”
  • Belleville News Democrat-Editorial: State knew but didn’t act, “What did state workers processing the Menard prison workers’ comp claims know, and when did they know it? Those are two questions that the people investigating the workers’ comp scandal should be asking. Based on emails we obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, it’s clear that at least some state workers knew there was an extensive problem at the prison more than a year before we wrote about it.”
