VIDEO: Rep. Breen Argues Against HB 581

This week in Springfield, State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) argued against a Democrat-sponsored bill that represented an extreme overreach by the General Assembly into contracts that are negotiated between the State and its vendors.

"For a contract that we have signed for a year, and that we have fully appropriated for in this General Assembly, we can 'stick it' to a social service provider with only 30 days notice," Breen said. "They could have signed that contract and staffed up their agency for the full year and 30 days later they've got to fire everybody. That's what this bill reads..."
