WTVO/WQRF - Illinois takes a step forward in gaining back the public's trust.

The Illinois Public Interest Research Group Education Fund released its 5th annual report on government spending transparency.

Illinois received a B+.

"Only 28% of Illinois' residents trust state government, by far the lowest rate in the country" says Brian Costin, Director of Government Reform for Illinois Policy Institute.  "Online transparency is a critical tool in fighting our state's public corruption problem and restoring the public's trust."

Still, despite the high grade, the report still puts Illinois behind neighboring states Indiana and Wisconsin.
