Governor And House Speaker Spar Over Budget Impasse

(Springfield, IL) — Governor Rauner and House Speaker Michael Madigan keep firing verbal jabs at each other as the state continues to operate without a budget. Rauner accused the Democrat yesterday of standing in the way of funding social programs in order to force a tax hike. Madigan fired back saying the Governor vetoed a spending plan sent to him that would help protect middle-class families.
