Weekend meetings don’t bring a new budget

Posted by wlpo on December 5, 2016

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Illinois legislative leaders have made little headway in the latest weekend meeting at Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner’s offices on a budget deal.

Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan complained to reporters the budget was discussed for just 14 minutes of a nearly 90 minute meeting Sunday. But Senate Republican leader Christine Radogno said Democrats were “unprepared.”

The sides also reported no notable progress Saturday.
