SPRINGFIELD, IL -(Effingham Radio)- Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner says he’d love to build new roads in the state.
But he’s less sure about how to pay for it.
The governor told reporters in Springfield that he fully supports a capital plan to build new roads and bridges, but he won’t raise taxes to pay for the work.
Instead the governor says finding some efficiencies in state government could produce the money.
The governor’s comments came a day after a new report said Illinois’ crumbling and congested roads costs drivers in the state 16 billion-dollars a year.
