World Shooting Complex could be victim of budget fight

Springfield – Among the threatened cuts announced today by Gov. Bruce Rauner is the suspension of operations at the World Shooting Recreational Complex near Sparta. The site would become closed to the public and not available for events after Sept. 1, Rauner said. All events scheduled through August, including the Grand American, would not be affected.

Of course, the closing could be averted if a balanced budget is approved.

The Shooting Complex is part of a second set of budget cuts Rauner is promising to make if the budget isn't approved. Two weeks ago, the governor announced other cuts that include closing state museums and halting DNR's land grant program.
