State Reps Want to Eliminate Office of Lieutenant Governor
Voters could have a chance to decide whether Illinois actually needs a Lieutenant Governor, as state representatives want to eliminate the job.
Currently, the lieutenant governor is next in line for the state's top job if something happens to the governor. If the office of lieutenant governor is eliminated, the Attorney General would take over if something happens to the governor. State representatives want to give voters the final decision and approved a plan that would put it on the next ballot. The proposal must now pass in the senate.
