Quinn sticks with ``natural resources professional'' plan

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

On Monday afternoon, Gov. Quinn's senior policy advisor Marc Miller reiterated that Quinn thinks a ``natural resources professional'' should run the IDNR.

And that the appointment of former Downstate legislator Kurt Granberg as IDNR director on Jan. 16 by disposed Gov. Blagojevich will get a quick review.

Miller said,

``The governor is reviewing all recent appointments [by Blagojevich] and no decision has been made yet about DNR. And, as he said in his [initial] press conference, it is his belief a natural resources professional should run the agency.''

Granberg was appointed IDNR director by Blagojevich, days after Granberg resigned his House seat just before the vote to impeach Blagojevich.

So far nothing official or unofficial on the timetable for reopening the seven state parks shuttered by Blagojevich.
