Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner will hold his annual budget address next week, and State Senator Andy Manar is calling on Rauner to do his job with the budget for the first time since becoming governor.
Manar says the governor is required by the state’s constitution to propose a balanced budget, yet Rauner hasn’t done that since taking office according to Manar.
In addition to not proposing balanced budgets, Manar says Rauner has also authorized additional spending not approved by the legislature.
Manar says it is a chance for everyone to look forward and do what’s best for the future of Illinois.
Manar appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
