Chamber Urges Rauner To Hang Tough In Budget Battle

(Chicago, IL) — While some Republican lawmakers may be wavering in their support of Governor Rauner’s hard-line budget stance, the state’s largest business group is urging him to stay the course. Illinois Chamber of Commerce President Todd Maisch’s op-ed in “Crain’s Chicago Business” said the pain being felt by many because of the budget deadlock is worth it if Rauner’s pro-business, anti-union reforms are realized. Maisch writes that the status quo in Illinois is unacceptable.
