State Rep. Mike Unes (R-East Peoria) said he is displeased with the way the capital bill quickly took shape.
Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a $45 billion infrastructure upgrade plan into law last month.
“There was thousands of pages of bills introduced in a matter of hours that spent over $40 billion that we were supposed to vote on without anybody reading it. That’s bad form," he said.
The Republican legislator said lawmakers were asked to vote on doubling the state motor fuel tax without getting a chance to actually know which projects would benefit.
