One day after House and Senate Republicans unveiled a compromise balanced budget plan, Governor Bruce Rauner is calling lawmakers back to Springfield.
Rauner says the Republican budget plan is one he can sign. It calls for a four year property tax freeze, compared to the two year freeze previously passed by lawmakers. House Speaker Michael Madigan released a statement saying House Democrats have tried to compromise with the Governor without hurting middle class families. He says when Democrats have tried to work to find common ground on a balanced budget, Rauner has refused to return to the bargaining table and negotiate.
