03022017CM0123Senate Democrats passed legislation Tuesday that would balance the state budget and bring much-needed funding to P-12 education, higher education and human services.

Senate Majority Leader James F. Clayborne (D- Belleville) released the following statement:

“Today, we passed a plan to bring stability and certainty to Illinoisans. Lawmakers have a responsibility to the people back home. We must put an end to this chaos and get Illinois back on track. We cannot wait any longer. The longer we go without a budget, the longer seniors go without meals on wheels, people go without medicated to receive cancer treatment and at-risk youth have no place to go after school. I hope to see this plan continue to progress.”
