Congressman Kinzinger Comments on State’s Budget Woes

Posted by wlpo on May 26, 2016

While his job involves representing the interests of the Illinois Valley nationally, one U.S. Representative is speaking his mind about the latest events in the state budget crisis.

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger issued a statement Thursday, saying Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan showed an “utter lack of leadership and civility” on Wednesday. House Democrats passed their own version of the budget Wednesday, one which did not take into account any of Governor Rauner’s pro-business proposals.

Kinzinger went on to say “Forcing an unbalanced budget down the throats of his colleagues and abruptly adjourning is not leadership.” Governor Rauner has already threatened to veto the spending plan if it passes the State Senate.
