SPRINGFIELD – I’m disappointed that Governor Bruce Rauner did not work to compromise with lawmakers to get a balanced budget passed by the end of the spring legislative session.

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza supports Senate Bill 1446, which would bring transparency and oversight to the state’s Medicaid system.
The bill would reveal the true cost of the state’s bill backlog.
SPRINGFIELD – The Debt Transparency Act (House Bill 3649) is headed to Governor Bruce Rauner’s desk after it passed with bipartisan support in the Senate late Thursday. The House approved HB 3649 with bipartisan backing last month.
