Rauner Reacts to Veto Session

Rauner Reacts to Veto Session

Governor Bruce Rauner suffered a number of setbacks during the just completed veto session. Lawmakers achieved overrides on most of the votes taken, but Rauner is taking the votes in stride and he says he doesn’t believe it indicates that GOP lawmakers are backing away from him a year before Rauner faces re-election.

 

Rauner says when it comes to dealing with sexual harassment at the Statehouse, there has been a pattern of failure.


Rauner hasn’t yet called for State Senator Ira Silverstein’s resignation after sexual harassment allegations were leveled against him.
