If the state or local police don't treat these any better than last years laws (throwing cigarettes on ground & phone use while driving) then these laws are a joke like Illinois.

Plan includes selling state planes and limiting outside employment for legislators

From Associated Press:

Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner has some proposals for cutting what he calls wasteful spending in Illinois.

Rauner told reporters Thursday that he'll sell most of the state's planes. He adds the state could save $60 million by moving lawmakers from pensions into 401(k) plans. He calls the Department of Central Management Services a "patronage cesspool." And he says he would merge the comptroller's and treasurer's offices to save $12 million.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn calls Rauner's plan "a prank" that contains no new ideas.

Rauner says he'll be rolling out more of his plans, including a budget, over the next few weeks. He has criticized Quinn for excessive spending, cronyism and trying to raise taxes. Rauner says he wouldn't take any salary or pension as governor.
