Senator Weaver on House spending plan
"Recently, a 500+ page spending bill was rushed through the House with just two hours notice before voting. This proposal is unbalanced by at least $7 billion and has been sent to the Senate for further consideration," said Senator Weaver.
"As a member of the Legislature, I have a responsibility to approve a balanced budget for the people of Illinois. There's still an opportunity to reach a compromise with the majority party — to pass a truly balanced budget alongside structural, pro-growth reforms — but time is running out. However, I am hopeful that we can still come together to create real solutions for Illinois."
