The Senate has worked both side of the isle for months to craft a grand bargain over the state’s lack of a budget and reforms that echo the turnaround agenda. But on Wednesday this week the vote was cancelled when not enough support was found from Republicans. The day started with the votes to be taken on workers compensation changes and tax hikes but votes from the R’s were disappearing and Senate President John Cullerton blames the Governor for squashing bipartisan support.

The Governor’s staff says that more work needs to be on the series of bills to assure it’s a good deal for everyone.
