SPRINGFIELD – State Senator John Mulroe (D-Chicago) released the following statement on the passage of a balanced budget:

Senator Mulroe on the Senate floor“Today, for the sake of our state, I voted to end the budget impasse and set our state on a path toward fiscal stability. We have worked with Republicans in the Senate for over six months to compromise on budgetary items and reforms. This budget passed the House with both Democratic and Republican support.

“I came to Springfield to fight for the future of our state and to stop the financial nose dive it has been taking. The balanced budget I supported today includes cuts, funds to pay off our backlog of bills and will support key government functions.

“With his signature, the governor can end the impasse and restore funding for schools, universities, social service agencies and road work. It’s time to stop the suffering and do the right thing. I hope that the governor signs these bills as soon as they reach his desk.”
