Senator Mulroe in committeeSPRINGFIELD – A stopgap measure passed the Senate today that would put $3.9 billion for various programs and institutions across Illinois. Senator John Mulroe (D-Chicago) explains his affirmative vote in the following statement:

“This engineered crisis the governor has created has gone on too long. It was easy six months ago to say ‘oh, it’s bad for those people but it won’t affect me or my family.’ The reality is becoming apparent to people across the state that this budget impasse will have very real and hurtful consequences if we don’t do something. This measure gives the governor spending authority for financial commitments that he chooses to make. Our intention is to ensure that existing contracts and other items get paid to avoid incurring a large and irresponsible bill backlog.”
