Senate Democrats Announce Reform Package

(Springfield, IL) — Illinois Senate Democrats say they have their own package of bills ready to counter Governor Rauner’s so-called “turnaround agenda.” Senator Don Harmon says the bills will address Rauner’s goal of reinvigorating the state’s economy by raising the state minimum wage, giving tax credit for college costs, guaranteeing seven paid sick days for all workers while ending business tax breaks to pay for those changes. There’s been no immediate comment from the Rauner Administration.
