Effingham, Ill. (Springfield, Ill.) – Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is hinting that he may close the state’s veterans home in Quincy.
The governor yesterday said that he is ‘reconsidering’ keeping the vets at the home after a fourth person in a little more than a week was diagnosed with Legionnaires disease.
The state has been fighting Legionnaires at the Quincy home since 2015. In all 13 people have died and dozens have gotten sick.
Rauner’s political opponents say he hasn’t done enough to keep the veterans in Quincy safe.
