“This is a failed governor who took Illinois to the brink of junk bond status by refusing to sign a bipartisan budget" - State Senator Dave Koehler (D-Peoria)

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Bruce Rauner gave his third State of the State address today in Springfield. State Senator Dave Koehler (D-Peoria) released the following statement after the address:

“The governor’s call for unity is three years too late. When Democrats and Republicans in the Senate came together last year to find a grand bargain to address issues the governor requested, he intervened and destroyed any progress that was made toward a bipartisan agreement.

“This is a failed governor who took Illinois to the brink of junk bond status by refusing to sign a bipartisan budget. Thank goodness we have Republican colleagues in the House who voted for both the budget and the veto override to save our state.”
