Lawmakers aren’t in Springfield, but Governor Bruce Rauner says budget negotiations are ongoing. The legislature left town last week, missing the usual deadline to pass a budget on May 31st. The state has gone more than 700 days now without a full budget. But, Governor Bruce Rauner says talks continue.
Rauner also accuses top Democrats of sabotaging the budget process for political gain. He says they want chaos and mayhem and don’t care who they hurt in the process. The next deadline is June 30th, when the state’s current fiscal year ends.
