Senator Bush speaks on the Senate floorSPRINGFIELD – Senator Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake) issued the following statement in response to the Senate's attempt to vote on the Grand Bargain today:

“For months, Senate Republicans and the governor have said, ‘Just one more thing and the deal will be good. We just need a little more time.’ We’ve changed the Grand Bargain bills over 30 times to meet Republican demands. We tried compromising on non-budgetary reforms, but the Republicans and Governor Rauner have made it clear that no compromise will ever be good enough. They say they need a little more time, but we don’t have any more time. The end of session is just three weeks away. The people of Illinois can’t wait any longer. Passing a balanced budget must be our sole focus.”
