Wallace Encourages Further Budget Progress, Urges Colleagues to Finish the Job
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Litesa Wallace, D-Rockford, issued the following statement as bipartisan budget negotiations continued in Springfield:
"From the first day of this budget impasse until now, I have urged colleagues on both sides of the aisle to put aside the partisan rhetoric and work to craft a responsible, balanced and honest budget. There have been positive signs today that negotiations are moving in the right direction, but work still remains. I will continue to stay in Springfield and am willing to support a spending plan that protects seniors, the developmentally disabled, survivors of abuse and other vulnerable individuals. Every resident in Rockford and every resident in this state will be impacted by the decisions made in the coming hours. With Democrats and Republicans coming together on a framework for a spending plan, I urge the governor to cooperate and to avoid derailing talks until a solution is in place."
