A local lawmaker is joining his fellow GOP lawmakers in their criticism of Illinois Democrats.
State Senator Chapin Rose believes Illinois Democrats in Springfield had gotten used to majorities in every branch of government and then Governor Bruce Rauner broke up that dominance. He says now they are quote -"unleashing pent up frustration on Illinois."
Like a few other states in the union, Illinois is now considering a partial birth abortion and Sen. Rose calls the proposal 'haunting'. He believes a majority of people do not like the idea of a partial birth abortion.
With Democrats controlling Springfield, Sen. Rose says there are several proposals that would impact gun-owners rights and even the shooting sports of central and downstate Illinois. He indicates it is his goal to forge relationships with his colleagues across the aisle and try to show them the impacts of the legislation they are supporting.
