“It is now time to devote all of our attention to passing a budget and avoiding a fiscal catastrophe that will paralyze Illinois for generations." - State Senator Dave Koehler (D-Peoria)

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Dave Koehler (D-Peoria) issued the following statement regarding the Grand Bargain vote in the Senate today:

“When the Illinois Senate came together in December to find a way out of this two-year impasse, we sent a message to the people of Illinois that their suffering would be over soon. A series of legislative proposals was unveiled that would include reforms the governor has been asking for. Five months later, we have changed those pieces of legislation over 30 times to accommodate our Republican colleagues to no avail.”

“It is now time to devote all of our attention to passing a budget and avoiding a fiscal catastrophe that will paralyze Illinois for generations. The people of Illinois cannot wait any longer for legislators to do their jobs and end this impasse.”
