Murphy: ‘It’s time for the tollway to start fresh.’

murphy 022819DES PLAINES State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) released the following statement regarding the governor’s announcement of the new directors for the Illinois Toll Highway Authority Board.

For months, Murphy has been vocal about the disturbing practices of the prior board and was part of a unanimous vote by the Illinois State Senate for a measure to eliminated the current board, allowing the governor to re-fill those vacancies

“It’s time for the tollway to start anew,” Murphy said. “With new directors and Gov. Pritzker’s leadership, I hope to see more transparency and accountability from the board. I am looking forward to a board who embraces these ideals and restores the public trust in the Tollway Authority. I am excited to see what this new chapter has in store.”
