Leaders meet in Chicago
Legislative leaders and Gov. Rauner met again on Dec. 8 to discuss the state’s ongoing budget impasse. This week’s meeting, held in Chicago, was not as high-profile as last week’s gathering of the leaders in Springfield, which included a public portion open to media.
While no major breakthroughs were made this week, leaders have agreed to meet again next week to continue working toward a solution to Illinois’ fiscal woes.
