Rauner to Dems – “Time to choose”, as Budget Impasse Reaches Day #100

It’s a familiar message from Governor Bruce Rauner to the Democrats in the General Assembly… use your supermajority to pass tax increases for new revenue or accept the Turnaround Agenda.

Rauner is telling Democratic lawmakers to decide whether they want reforms or just more of the status quo – but says whatever they decide, “please choose now.”

The governor says he will work with lawmakers on new revenue to balance the budget if they will approve his reform agenda, including changes to workers comp, the legislative map process, and limitations on unions.

Today is day #100 of the fiscal year, with no deal on a budget in sight.
