SenateFloorSMSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D – Chicago Heights) released the following statement this afternoon after a bipartisan group of Illinois House members voted to override Governor Rauner’s budget vetoes:

“For the first time in two years, Illinois has a complete balanced budget. The governor gets pension changes his administration sought that should produce nearly $1.5 billion in annual savings. There are also resources dedicated in this budget to pay down $8 billion in overdue bills.

“This budget is a responsible step forward that will restore economic stability and certainty to Illinois. We are counting on rating agencies to recognize our progress and the importance of today’s action.”
