The traditional spring legislative session has come to an end and, once again, legislators and the governor were not able to come to an agreement on the state's budget. Over the past 11 months without a state budget, Illinois has been governed by a series of court orders and emergency funding bills to avoid crisis after crisis. This is no way to support our citizens and schools.
The House now stands in continuous session, and I'm anxious to return to Springfield to pass a budget that provides the stability that businesses, workers, schools and our most in-need neighbors so desperately need.
While we're away, groups of rank and file legislators continue to work toward a compromise that can be ready when session resumes. I look forward to reviewing these proposals and maintain my pledge to work with every perspective to move us past this crisis.
An issue we all agree upon is the need to have all Illinois schools open on time this fall. During the spring session, I supported a measure which increased funding for our schools. The bill spent less money than the spending plan proposed in Fiscal Year 2016 and also included money for in-home care for the elderly and breast and cervical cancer screening for area women.
This budget impasse is unprecedented in our state, but you have my commitment to continue working with all parties until we find a compromise and move Illinois forward.
If you have questions, please contact my full time constituent service office at 773-445-8128.
