Springfield city officials and several state legislators have filed a lawsuit to try to stop Gov. Rod Blagojevich from moving the Illinois Transportation Department’s Division of Traffic Safety to Harrisburg.

Blagojevich said the move would help boost the weak economy in southern Illinois and save the state $12.8 million in rent over the next decade.

The announcement met with immediate opposition from the division’s 140 employees. During a Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability hearing held at the Capitol on July 31, state Rep. Rick Brauer called it a “cruel thing for the governor to do.”
