Congratulations and gratitude to Governor Pritzker, Leaders Cullerton, Brady, Madigan, Durkin, and all of the legislators who took votes potentially unpopular with at least some of their constituents.
I will continue to applaud any of our elected officials who will put their names to either specific revenues or specific cuts whether I agree with them or not. I continue to believe that a stable, balanced budget is the single best thing we can do for Illinois’ business climate, and this is a step in that direction.
During the last administration I often wished that House Republicans would use their extraordinary leverage to get some their priorities passed. Though it would seem they now have less leverage than they did, they achieved a good measure of success. Illinois will be the better for it if they can continue to balance opposition with bipartisanship.
Just another day at the office, doing the job he was elected to do.
What a strange concept.

So the veto session will address more issues maybe Medicaid but in. As I said before Repubs should ask for more workman comp tinkering. Could Pritzger accomplish all of the reasonable parts of Rauners agenda.?
Anyone miss Blago or Quinn either?
