On June 12th Bruce Rauner shared his blueprint for the start of reforming state spending. Item #2 was a plan to sell the state planes saving the taxpayers $10 million dollars. Today, Gov. Quinn announced $250 million in budget cuts. As part of that plan, he is selling 9 of the state owned planes.
This is the second time this year Bruce Rauner has affected the deliberations in Springfield and saved taxpayers money. Rauner helped stop the temporary tax increase from becoming permanent with his relentless statements on the issue and robocalls into the districts of vulnerable legislators.
Bruce Rauner is showing he will fight to cut spending, and lower taxes just while running for Governor. Just imagine what he can do once he becomes Governor and has the veto pen in hand.
