Severin Reacts to Rauner Calling Special Session on Budget Impasse

SPRINGFIELD – One day after House and Senate Republicans unveiled a compromise balanced budget plan to end the budget impasse, Governor Bruce Rauner Thursday called lawmakers back to Springfield for a 10-day special session from Wednesday, June 21 through the June 30 fiscal year deadline.

Republican State Representative Dave Severin of Benton says when legislators left town on May 31, they were very discouraged and the news from the Governor Thursday is a positive step.
