Senator Duffy in the News
This week the Lake County News Sun published an editorial about Senator Duffy's fight against abusive boards and commissions.
From the Lake County News Sun:
It would be fine to have these noble groups,
except they spend state money and produce no tangible results. State
Sen. Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, is on a one-man crusade to winnow the

Take, for instance, the Illinois Torture and
Inquiry Relief Commission, a part of the state’s Human Rights
Commission. This group sounds like it has some lofty ideals, but Duffy
points out the commission has met only four times since February 2011,

executive director. We would assume being a state employee the executive
director also receives health-care benefits and a state pension.
