1 month, 3 weeks ago from the Associated Press

Claims reportedly will save roughly $100,000 yearly

From from the Associated Press:

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says the state is going to cut about 35 percent of its paid parking spaces for employees in downtown Chicago.

In a Tuesday news release, his office says eliminating 80 paid spots will save roughly $100,000 yearly. The decision affects state agency workers, mostly chiefs of staff and directors.

Quinn spokesman Grant Klinzman says the move cuts the number of paid spots from 226 to 146. He says many of those left are for shared cars in downtown garages employees can use

Quinn's decision was part of an ongoing "budget review."
