FTFA: In 2012, a bill was passed that mandated Central Management Services add similar information for all county, township and municipal employees in the state. Public library employees also were supposed to be added when a law was passed last summer. Those additions never happened. Garrett was a sponsor of the bill that added cataloging county, township and municipal employees to the Central Management Services webmaster's duties. That bill added the "subject to appropriation" provision.....Garrett and House co-sponsor state Rep. Jack Franks, a Marengo Democrat, contend they were never made aware of any costs to implement the law. "There was no appropriation necessary," Franks said. Local governments "already have this information and all they have to do is transmit it to the state electronically. There's absolutely no cost and anybody who hides behind that ought to be tarred and feathered."

All county, township, municipal and library employees with the "names, job titles, current pay rates and year-to-date salary totals." in the State of Illinois?  That's gotta be a farkton of people. And this isn't supposed to add to anyone's currently assigned duties and deadlines? I suppose they could use  SCMODS as a model. I bet they've got  SCMODS.

I am outraged that state employees aren't working on the project unpaid, after hours, aided by county, city and township employees using vacation days.

Sure, Illinois state employees work a lot of unpaid hours. Are there other laws you'd like them to ignore because?

They can easily do utilizing the same techniques Virginia will use to hold a special election for Eric Cantor's House seat at no cost to the taxpayer.

Jack Franks is a kinda a tool. Bomb-throwing populist gadfly, out to make trouble and thus, headlines. A fun guy to talk to, but little he says is serious.

Reminds me when Des Moines flooded in 1993,  The City water works built sandbag levies based on the USGS's predicted crest based on the reported outflow from the Army Core dam of the Des Moines river.  The Army Core had increased the out flow so the water was already above the predicted crest and the city asked the USGS if they were sure of their calculations.

The Army Core officer who increased the flow out the dam said it wasn't his job to report he increased the flow.

Short story long 500,000 people did not have running water for a month after the water works flooded.
