Last week's stopgap budget deal featured unusual bipartisan compliments as only four members of the Illinois General Assembly voted against a plan to open schools on time and provide funding for six months of state services.
Maverick Democratic Representative Jack Franks was one of those four. He says the short term band aid will cost taxpayers sooner rather than later.
Franks says problems will only expand because of the stopgap budget.
Franks is leaving the legislature and seeking to become President of the McHenry County Board.
