CHICAGO (CBS) — Gov. Pat Quinn has decided to eliminate dozens of state parking spaces downtown, taking away free parking for many state employees.
WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports the governor has cut 80 paid parking spots used by the state, mostly in downtown parking garages. The shared parking spots were used by state workers, who parked in the spots for free.
Better Government Association president and CEO Andy Shaw said “this is a very small, but welcome step.”
