Breen Demands House Debate Budget

Today, on the second day of Special Session in Springfield, lawmakers in the House did not spend their time discussing any of the budget bills that have been filed. Instead, time was spent voting on resolutions brought forward by various legislators, including HR 78, a measure that urges the U.S. Congress to continue funding Planned Parenthood.

During the floor debate on the resolution, State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) asked why, when Illinois has gone more than 700 days without a budget, the body is spending time voting on resolutions rather than working on a balanced budget.
