Granberg out; Miller in?

As expected since Pat Quinn became governor, Kurt Granberg is out as IDNR director.

Two good sources and my gut says Marc Miller will be in.

An annoucement is expected after a 2:30 p.m. news conference by Gov. Quinn tomorrow afternoon in Springfield.

Miller earned his stripes as senior policy advisor for Quinn and before that with Prairie Rivers Network.

Granberg, a former Downstate legislator, resigned his seat just before the Illinois House voted to impeach former Gov. Blagojevich. Then on Jan. 16, Blagojevich named Granberg IDNR director, earning him a bump of more than $40,000 in pension.
