During the House floor debate on Friday with only 4 days left in the regular session, Rep. Mark Batinick stood up to join House Republicans in calling for a commitment towards a budget solution and compromise.
The General Assembly has a few days left to get a budget passed and needs to continue to work towards a bipartisan compromise to our State’s budget impasse. Rank and file members have been in working groups aimed at bridging the gap and coming up with both reforms and budgetary compromises. Speaker Madigan dismissed these inclusive groups, saying they haven’t made progress. He’s wrong. They’re making progress and they need to continue their work.
