Rep. Wehrli, Republicans Stand Up for Budget Compromise


State Representative Grant Wehrli on Friday stood up with his  House Republican colleagues calling for  the House to continue working through the Weekend on a responsible compromise budget solution.

Rank and file members have been participating in working groups aimed at bridging the gap and coming up with both reforms and budgetary compromises, but Speaker Madigan this week dismissed the groups' efforts , and, with mere days remaining in the scheduled spring session, on Friday adjourned the House for the weekend.

Representative Wehrli again stressed that he is ready to work every day on a responsible, balanced budget compromise.
