Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) issued the following statement in reaction to Gov. Bruce Rauner’s call for unity among state lawmakers who will begin a 10-day special session called by the governor beginning Wednesday.

“It’s as if Gov. Rip Van Winkle has awakened from a two-and-a-half-year nap to find the state he was supposed to manage is teetering on the brink of fiscal collapse,” said Manar, chairman of a key Senate budget committee.

“While I welcome Gov. Rauner’s input into how we can seal a state budget deal, I will remind him that he and Republican lawmakers are three weeks late in sauntering to the table. Luckily, they will find his balanced budget, with his requested reforms, awaiting approval in the House that already passed in the Senate.”
