A local representative Tuesday called the latest funding bill proposed by House Speaker Mike Madigan "a cruel hoax on the people of Illinois".

 

State Representative Dan Brady asked the Speaker how he planned to pay for a spending bill that totaled $3.89-billion. He pled for everyone to come together to do the budget process properly.

 

 

Many on the Republican side of the aisle said what took place was not compromise or fiscal responsibility but rather just another partisan spending bill filled with empty promises for students, universities, community colleges, social service providers and our most vulnerable citizens.
