Gov. Rauner to meet with lawmakers on state budget
SPRINGFIELD, IL —
Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is meeting with lawmakers on Thursday to try and negotiate a balanced budget with reform.
Rauner says right now Democrats only want to do another stop gap budget.
The governor says he will only consider that spending plan if two bipartisan reforms are included.
"If Democratic leaders continue to push only for a stop gap budget, we will insist on term limits and a permanent tax freeze as part of it," said Gov. Rauner.
Rauner says the tax freeze will help hardworking families and small businesses, and that most people in Illinois support term limits.
