A series of reform bills that Governor Bruce Rauner has pushed could be called for votes in the Illinois House today as lawmakers creep toward Friday's budget deadline. State Representative Dan Brady says House Speaker Mike Madigan has undermined progress negotiators have made toward a budget solution, by unveiling his own demands in the final days of the session. Brady has a message for the speaker and governor.
Madigan says the Democrat’s proposed spending plan is balanced. Minority Leader Jim Durkin says that has yet to be seen because House Democrats have yet to introduce a tax increase.
