Sen. Barickman statement on Senate approval of LIG candidate

State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) released the following statement after the Senate, on a party-line vote, approved the nomination of a candidate for LIG without following the established process:

“People should be able to have confidence in their government, but for years Illinoisans have been given very little reason to. The selection of a new LIG, who serves as the ethics watchdog for the legislature, was an opportunity to show the public that times have changed for the better. Instead, the super majority party ignored the established process and any semblance of transparency, making it clear that they are more focused on business as usual.”
