Rep. Breen Opposes "Blackmail Budget"

Today in Springfield, members of the House of Representatives approved revenue and spending packages that aim to end the budget impasse. SB06 (spending) was approved by an 81-34 vote and SB 09 (revenue) by a 72-45 vote. State Representative Peter Breen, who voted against both bills, spoke about his opposition during the floor debate, and said they include no mechanism for paying down the $15 billion backlog of bills, and do not take steps to reform Illinois’ bloated government or clean up corruption.
