Illinois Working Together Statement on the Bipartisan Balanced Budget Plan
Illinois Working Together Campaign Director Jake Lewis released the following statement regarding the Illinois state budget deal:
"Today, the Illinois Senate joined the House in passing a bipartisan balanced budget plan. After more than two years of crisis, Gov. Rauner has a simple choice in front of him. The governor can sign the bills and end the Rauner Crisis that has caused devastation to our students, seniors, and economy. Or, Rauner can veto the package, prolong the crisis he created, and forever cement his status as Governor Junk."
