FILE - In this March 4, 2015 file photo, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner speaks at an event in Springfield, Ill. Rauner says his plan to privatize the state's economic development agency will improve job creation in Illinois. But similar plans in other states have sometimes created legal and ethical problems, as well as concerns that taxpayers had no way of knowing how their money was being spent. Ohio, Indiana Michigan and other states have experienced problems with transparency. In some cases private economic development agencies have overstated how many jobs they help create. Jim Schultz is Rauner’s new director of the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. He said a private corporation would be more agile in its ability to quickly negotiate. It could also pay more to recruit employees. And Schultz believes Illinois can learn from problems in other states. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman) less
