A bill designed to eliminate unnecessary units of government, which is sponsored by Rep. Jack Franks (D-Marengo), and supported by the Better Government Assn., has passed in the General Assembly and now goes to Gov. Pat Quinn to be signed into law.

Comment: Mass consolidations on an emergency basis of Illinois’ exceptionally high level of overlapping governmental units should have started long ago.
