Illinois Working Together Statement on Ratings Downgrades by Moody's and S&P

Illinois Working Together Campaign Director Jake Lewis released the following statement in response to today's credit downgrades by Moody's and S&P:

"In light of today's downgrades, the seventh and eighth downgrades of Gov. Bruce Rauner's tenure, we are reminded of Rauner's June 3, 2013 tweet:

"'@BruceRauner: Ilinois' [sic] credit rating just got downgraded....again. Unacceptable. #ILReform'

"We agree with Rauner. Unacceptable."
