Concerns Continue as No Agreement Reached on Growing Spending Crisis


With the FY15 budget more than $1.6 billion out of balance, more and more sub-sectors of the Illinois economy were affected this week. House Republicans reaffirmed their commitment to solving issues related to immediate funding issues faced by child care, corrections, and court reporter sectors of the economy.

“The unbalanced FY15 budget needs to be corrected immediately and brought into balance,” asserted House Republican Leader Jim Durkin on Tuesday, March 3. Pointing to the State’s failure under former Gov. Pat Quinn to meet its constitutional responsibility to enact a balanced budget, Durkin and his leadership team pledged to help “clean up the mess Governor Rauner inherited on January 12, 2015.”

I would love to see a bold Gov. Rauner make several moves to do
what WI Gov. Scott Walker did and really shake things up.
