State Senator Dave Koehler issued the following statement about the Illinois budget impasse in Springfield:
"I'm disappointed that the governor has been unwilling to come to a compromise on the state budget.
"Soon, people everywhere are going to feel the effects of his decision. Parents are going to have to choose between their jobs and their kids as they lose access to child care. Seniors are going to have to move into nursing homes as programs that help them stay in their homes shut down. People with disabilities aren't going to understand why their lives are changing as services and programs close.
"I'm ready to do my part to end this impasse. I urge the governor and my Republican colleagues to do the same."
