Clayborne React State Senator James F. Clayborne (D-Belleville) released the following statement regarding Gov. Bruce Rauner’s unity speech delivered Tuesday evening in Springfield:

“The Senate passed a balanced budget in May with reforms requested by Gov. Rauner. Instead of supporting that plan, he pulled Republican votes off of it and allowed it to sit in the House until the regular session ended. The state has gone 720 days without a budget, and our backlog of unpaid bills has risen to $15 billion. I think Gov. Rauner’s call for unity is a little late.”
