Rauner And Legislative Leaders To Meet Today
Gov. Bruce Rauner has planned another round of talks on state budget with legislative leaders in Chicago. Rauner spokeswoman Catherine Kelly says the meeting is Tuesday afternoon at The James R. Thompson Center. The Republican met last week with leaders for first time in months, including Democratic
House Speaker Michael Madigan and Democratic Senate President John Cullerton.
The leaders have not been able to agree on a spending plan for the fiscal year that began on July 1.
Part of last week's meeting in Springfield was televised, with each leader giving an opening statement. Attendees say little was accomplished besides agreeing to meet again.
