More Monetary Waste from Illinois' US Senators

(AP) — Illinois' U.S. senators have asked federal officials to review Lake Shore Drive safety, days after a blizzard socked Chicago with 20 inches of snow.
U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk wrote a letter Sunday to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Secretary of Transportation. It requests the agencies look at Lake Michigan water levels, impact waves and weak spots.
The letter says a major vehicle route close to a major body of water can have "unintended consequences." The senators say things could have been worse last week if water levels hadn't been at historic lows.
Last week's storm left hundreds stranded on the drive. While some feared impact from giant waves, businesses and residents near the drive said water close to the shore line was frozen.

At Steinberg Burtker & Grossman, Ltd., Chicago Injury Attorneys we are concerned about the political waste in Washington, Springfield and Chicago. The actions of Senator's Durbin and Kirk illustrate the fact that the spending and waste will continue regardless of political party.  We suggest that they each put on their boots and walk the lakefront. They will then know everything they need to know, without wasting millions of taxpayer dollar.
