Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner pledged to save taxpayers money by eliminating some of the state's nearly 7,000 units of government.
Now, a task force is preparing its final recommendations.
Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti is the commission's chairwoman. She says its suggestions could make government more efficient and effective if the Legislature and Rauner choose to implement them.
The suggestions include letting voters decide whether a unit of government should be eliminated.
“At the end of the day, the savings are going to be huge,” Sanguinetti said.
