Governor signed an Education Budget. Why not give legislators leave to vote for
SB 2046? Legislators were given leave to vote on AIDS legislation. We need
House Republicans and Democrats to support and vote for Senate Bill 2046. The
bills fate now hangs in balance with the recent loss of Representative Golar.
What is your legislators positon on SB 2046??

What we do know is that advocates will fill the Capitol on Thursday calling for
legislators to support SB 2046!

Gov. Rauner warns he will veto $3.8B stopgap spending bill

Gov. Bruce Rauner’s office is warning lawmakers that the Republican will veto a
$3.8 billion spending bill pending in the Illinois House.

The measure approved by the Senate this month would provide funds for breast
cancer screenings, autism treatment, lottery payouts and more during the state
budget stalemate.

It’s scheduled to be considered by the House executive committee and could get
a floor vote on Thursday.

In a letter to House lawmakers on Monday, Rauner Deputy Chief of Staff for
Legislative Affairs Richard Goldberg calls the bill “the latest multibillion-dollar
piecemeal attempt” to pass an unbalanced budget. He urges legislators to reject
the spending plan.

Rauner and majority Democrats have been unable to agree on a budget for the
fiscal year that began July 1.

The bill is SB2046.
