Budget cuts and staff reductions have led to a jump in overtime costs for the Illinois State Police.
Charges have been filed against the driver of a semi-trailer truck that plowed into an Illinois State Police cruiser on Interstate 88 in Aurora, killing an Illinois Tollway worker and injuring a state trooper. The victims were assisting a disabled truck.
She says budgets are being cut across the country and the agency must "hold the line and utilize the resources we have."
State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says she's not aware of a morale problem.
