Mark Brown has a great column here in today's Sun-Times about how Cook County officials killed a smart program to get more affordable housing in Illinois. The culprit? Gene Moore.
I won't paraphrase the column anymore than I already have, but those guys were working on this bill hard all session, and the bill should have passed.
Let's consolidate some of these county offices (recorder of deeds, clerk, clerk of the circuit court, assessor), save some money and have fewer people to monkey around with good state legislation.
