Statement from Rep. John Cavaletto on the ‘End of Session’

“I am very disappointed that the Democrat leadership attempted to push through a bailout funding bill for Chicago schools at the expense of Downstate school children. The rank and file members of the General Assembly have been making progress this week to reach a compromise on a balanced budget and even fund schools at 100% level for the first time in years, but the political games continue, while real people and children get hurt. This is unacceptable! I continue to stand ready to make the hard decisions to move our State forward. Now the legislature remains in ‘continuous session’ and adjourned to the call of the Speaker. We should stay in Springfield until our work for the people is completed."
