Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) issued the following statement tonight regarding Gov. Bruce Rauner’s apparent interference in today’s Illinois Senate grand bargain negotiations:

“How many times will the state’s great negotiator slam the door on opportunities to negotiate? He’s refused to negotiate a state budget for two years. Now he won’t allow Republican senators to negotiate a state budget in the best interest of their constituents. And he refuses to negotiate a contract with thousands of state workers.

“They say that if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. I think that in light of today’s developments we can say without a doubt that Governor Rauner is the problem. He doesn’t want a budget. He wants to control everyone around him. That’s not how this works.”
