Rauner Warns of Special Session

Governor Bruce Rauner says lawmakers may be returning to Springfield sooner, rather than later and not by choice as the state's budget disaster rolls on.

Despite the threat, Rauner says there is some work going on in the General Assembly toward a budget deal.

Despite his claims the school finance restructuring bill is a bailout for Chicago schools, Rauner told a reporter in Peoria when it comes to a possible delayed start to the school year because of the budget impasse "we won't let that happen".
