Letter: Want to save money? Close Second City state capitol

Comment on this story

Just a thought. With Illinois in such bad shape financially, it sure seems odd that we have to have two state capitols!

Seems like whenever I read something about Illinois government, it comes from CHICAGO not Springfield. I wonder how much taxpayer money could be saved IF they would close the second capitol and make all of our elected officials go to Springfield to take care of business!
