Rep. Wehrli: Governor’s Budget Priorities are “spot-on”

Statement of State Representative Grant Wehrli on Governor Bruce Rauner’s Wednesday Budget Address:

“The Governor’s priorities are spot-on. We need a balanced, full-year budget focused on growing our economy and protecting taxpayers. And yes, we must do some things differently to accomplish those objectives,” said Rep. Wehrli “For years, Speaker Madigan and his enablers have ignored their Constitutional obligation to pass a responsible, balanced budget. That’s why we’re in the mess we’re in.  But finally, we have some bi-partisan consensus that reforms are necessary to fix it.  We need to build on recent progress made in the Senate and move forward together.”
