Dick Durbin Lends His Support To Road Lock Box Amendment
Illinois' Senior U.S. Senator is throwing his support behind a plan that could place hundreds of millions of dollars at the Illinois Capitol off limits. Democrat Dick Durbin says the proposed lock box amendment for roads is a good idea. Supporters say the amendment would stop lawmakers from spending road money on anything but roads. But critics say the idea would also force the state to spend millions on roads, and would erase flexibility from the state budget.
