Bruce Rauner Sterigenics
After spending the past month downplaying cancer risks from toxic air pollution in west suburban Willowbrook, Gov. Bruce Rauner on Tuesday joined a chorus of elected officials calling for the shutdown of a Sterigenics International facility owned by his former private equity firm.
Fellow Republicans from DuPage County have been clamoring for Rauner to take more aggressive action against the company, which for more than three decades has used highly potent ethylene oxide gas to sterilize medical instruments, pharmaceutical drugs, and food near densely populated neighborhoods and several schools. The most the Republican governor would say aboutSterigenics was that he had instructed the Illinois Environmental ProtectionAgency to launch an investigation.
He changed course after the weekend, ordered his staff to refer the case to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, the state’s chief lawyer, then urged the democrat to seek a court order that would close the Willowbrook facility until a separate federal investigation “Assures the community that resumed operations would not present an elevated health risk.” Rauner’s sudden reversal comes as local politicians, many of whom like the governor are on the Nov. 6 ballot, face a fury of complaints about a federal report that revealed unusually high cancer risks from ethylene oxide pollution in traditionally Republican communities nearSterigenics.
Bruce Rauner Campaign
Standing Up for Taxpayers
Hardworking Illinois taxpayers have been burdened for too long by career politicians. They would rather spend your money than do the people’s work. Mike Madigan’s permanent 32 percent income tax hike hurts families and businesses. I’ve proposed a plan to roll back Madigan’s tax hike and give Illinois families a $1 billion tax cut, keeping more money in their pocket and giving a boost to the state’s economy.
Criminal Justice Reform
Fixing a broken system takes time and consistent effort, which is why my administration is committed to creating lasting reform to address the systemic issues in our criminal justice system.
Cleaning Up Government
Illinois’ political system is broken, and it’s going to take real reforms to fix it. Our state is controlled by a political machine and special interests who will do anything to protect the status quo. I’m working to clean up Springfield by getting rid of illegal patronage hires. I’m implementing ethics reforms to stop the revolving door between lobbyists and the government. Illinois voters deserve to choose their elected officials, not the other way around. That’s why I’m fighting for term limits and fair maps to make elections more competitive and ensure politicians are genuinely accountable to voters.
Every student in Illinois deserves an education that prepares them for success in college, their careers, and life. We need higher standards, effective funding, and more choice and control for parents and communities.
