A local Republican lawmaker is reinforcing his stance that he is willing to hear out Governor elect JB Pritzker before making any judgments.
State Senator Chapin Rose says he is interested to see how the new general assembly will work together given the House of Representatives has their biggest majority in Illinois since the 1960s.
Sen. Rose says he's already concerned because of pay raises for Pritzker's cabinet members, calling it spending money we don't have.
The Senator believes Democrats are going to find budgeting difficult. He feels new members of the legislature want to spend money but points out, Illinois does not have the money to spend.
