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 number of these boards and commissions. Good luck, senator on trying to the break grip of these make-work agencies.

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, while spending $150,000 on two salaries, including $80,000 for an executive director. We would assume being a state employee the executive director also receives health-care benefits and a state pension.
