Mitchell statement on Special Session Proclamations

Decatur, IL – State Representative Bill Mitchell (R-Forsyth) issued the following statement Thursday in response to Governor Bruce Rauner’s call for Special Sessions of the Illinois General Assembly starting Wednesday, June 21 through the end of the month:

“It’s unfortunate that since the first of June, Speaker Madigan has not kept us in Springfield to do the job we’re elected to do. Speaker Madigan is once again negligent in his duties to the people of the state of Illinois.

I am glad that the Governor is calling us back for Special Session to pass a truly balanced budget. I’m hopeful that we will get a real balanced budget – no gimmicks – where expenses meet our revenue, so we can get Illinois back on track.

The people of Illinois are absolutely sick and tired of the shenanigans over in Springfield. I applaud the Governor for taking action. We need to stay in session, do our job and pass a balanced budget.”
