Sen. Righter issues statement on Governor calling for a Special Session

State Sen. Dale Righter Rose (R-Mattoon) issued the following statement in response to Gov. Bruce Rauner calling for a Special Session:

“This is the right thing to do. It’s the job of the legislature to pass a balanced budget. Constitutionally, the legislature is the only entity that that can pass a balanced budget.

“I look forward to returning to Springfield and continuing to negotiate in good faith with the Democrat majority to pass a true bi-partisan and balanced budget – one that includes the necessary reforms that will move Illinois forward economically and fiscally.”
