Rep. Wehrli Applauds Governor’s Determination for Meaningful Reforms

Statement of State Representative Grant Wehrli on Governor Rauner’s State of the State Address:

“Decades of ‘business as usual’ in Springfield are what got us into our current mess. The Governor is right that continuing to simply throw more money at the problems won’t solve them. We need fundamental change in the way state government operates, and that starts with coming together to pass a responsible, balanced budget,” said Representative Grant Wehrli (R-Naperville). “I was glad to hear the Governor focus today on education, and on making Illinois more competitive in attracting and keeping good jobs. I was also very glad to hear him reach across the aisle in the spirit of compromise.”
