SPRINGFIELD (WIFR) -- Controversy could be brewing in Springfield over how the Illinois Department of Transportation receives funding.
The Illinois Statehouse News is reporting money meant for maintaining state highways could be paying for some of IDOT's everyday expenses.
According to the Transportation for Illinois Coalition, Governor Pat Quinn's budget diverts almost $250 million from the state's road fund, which is fueled by vehicle license fees and the state's motor fuel tax, to pay IDOT's health-care, workers' comp and building rent and maintenance costs.
