Sen. Melinda Bush, D-Grayslake, co-sponsored the measure to meant to help consolidate local government.

In an effort to find ways to continue to consolidate local government, State Sen. Melinda Bush, D-Grayslake, supported a new law that was recently signed by Governor Rauner that allows two Lake County Sanitary Districts to dissolve and relegate their duties and obligations to county government, according to a news release.

“This legislation, in addition to others I’ve sponsored and supported this year, is an answer to clear calls from the community asking us to provide the means to consolidate local government,” Bush said.. “Property owners are paying taxes on more than 7,000 units of local government throughout Illinois. We don’t need that many, and it’s time to seek common sense ways to reorganize where we can while still providing quality services.”
