To share the success seen in DuPage County, State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) passed Senate Bill 3, which will spread DuPage County’s bipartisan government consolidation model statewide.
Cullerton passed Senate Bill 494 in 2013, which created the DuPage County government consolidation model used in Senate Bill 3. County Board Chairman Dan Cronin and Cullerton worked to create an innovative government consolidation model that can be adapted to work throughout the state.
Through this model, DuPage County is projected to save taxpayers more than $100 million over the next 20 years. The savings allow for lower property tax rates and provide residents with necessary services.
