Statement from Rep. McDermed on the End of Session

Responding to the end of scheduled legislative spring session, State Representative Margo McDermed (R-Mokena) released the following statement:

"It is unbelievable and incredibly disappointing that after months of spring session we have arrived at this point. We had plenty of time to work together to fix the downward trajectory of our great State and yet the General Assembly has no budget or anything substantial to show for it. This unprecedented situation proves more than ever that the Springfield way of doing things is broken. Every legislator is going to go home to their districts and think long and hard about where we go from here. We swore an oath to do right by our State Constitution and our constituents. We must move forward together to forge the elements of balanced budget and reforms that will put this State back on the right path to fiscal sanity and certainty."
