(Undated) — Governor Bruce Rauner is finished with a weekend trip around the state touring flood-stricken areas. Rauner is asking people living in areas that have evacuation notices to heed the warnings. He’s requested the Illinois National Guard to be ready to mobilize, especially in Alexander County, where Mississippi River levees are breaching. Rauner says due to the state budget impasse and general deficits, Illinois doesn’t have the money to help with the damage.
