    Newly minted Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner took action to eliminate the last minute moves of his predecessor. 

    Rauner signed executive order 15-11 and rescinded a number of executive orders signed by Pat Quinn during his final weeks in office. 

    “It is clear that too many of Pat Quinn’s actions during his final weeks in office were in an effort to settle political scores and not wholly aimed at serving the public’s interest,” said Lance Trover, spokesman for the governor. “The Rauner Administration will decide on a case-by-case basis if any Executive Orders should be re-implemented.”
