Rutherford statement on IDOC ammunition purchase:
PONTIAC, IL – State Senator Dan Rutherford (R-Pontiac) delivered the following comments after learning about the Illinois Department of Corrections plan to purchase ammunition from an out of state company.
“Now let me get this straight. The state is $6000 behind paying an Illinois vendor for bullets for correctional officers, so the vendor required the state to pay cash upfront,” Rutherford said. “Instead of resolving the late payments to our Illinois vendor, this Administration made an emergency purchase with an Indiana company for $200,000 worth of ammunition. What are they thinking? Indiana does not have a problem with job creation, so why would we spend public monies to help an out-of-state vendor.”
