Frerichs Favors Merging Comptroller And Treasurer

Illinois’ incoming treasurer is promoting an alternative to holding a special election for a new comptroller in 2016.

Mike Frerichs says Illinois should eliminate the comptroller’s office entirely at that point, and let him, as treasurer, take over the duties.

Legislators on Thursday are set to debate what to do about the vacancy in the comptroller’s office created when Judy Baar Topinka died in mid-December, shortly before she was to begin a new term that would have lasted through 2018.
