Democrats hit Rauner on spending for new warehouse space

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Illinois Senate Democrats say Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration inappropriately spent money to move records from a closed prison to new warehouse space. Sen. Andy Manar is a Bunker Hill Democrat. He questioned Corrections Department Director John Baldwin during an appropriations committee hearing Wednesday. Manar says records had been stored at the former Dwight Correctional Center in Livingston County. But he says those records were moved to a newly leased Springfield warehouse.
