Rep. Davidsmeyer: Statement on State Budget Address

Governor Bruce Rauner’s budget address was an olive branch of compromise to Democrats who want to begin negotiating on a bipartisan budget. Sadly, Members of the Illinois General Assembly are still divided.

This division was on display today when the Governor called on General Assembly Members to pass a budget that fully funds education. Republicans clapped but Democrats did not.

Funding education and investing in our future should be something that everyone agrees on.
