WITH JUST NINE DAYS LEFT IN THE SPRING LEGISLATIVE SESSION…GOVERNOR BRUCE RAUNER IS URGING LAWMAKERS TO COME TOGETHER AND PASS A BALANCED BUDGET ALONG WITH SOME OF HIS PROPOSALS.

 

GOVERNOR RAUNER IS REITERATING HIS CALL FOR THINGS LIKE WORKER’S COMPENSATION REFORM AND A PROPERTY TAX FREEZE WHICH HE SAYS ARE VITAL TO IMPROVING THE STATE’S ECONOMY.

 

 

THE GOVERNOR SAYS HE’S ALREADY MADE SIGNIFICANT COMPROMISES AND WHITTLED DOWN HIS DEMANDS. HE ASKS LAWMAKERS TO DO THE SAME. BUT WHAT’S HIS BIGGEST PRIORITY?

 

 

THE STATE HAS BEEN WITHOUT A BUDGET FOR MORE THAN 10 MONTHS NOW. THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION ENDS MAY 31ST. AFTER THAT DATE…IT REQUIRES MORE VOTES TO PASS BILLS…MAKING THE PROCESS EVEN MORE DIFFICULT.
