Senate in Special Session for 10 minutes, McConchie urges legislators to get serious


State Senator Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) releases the following statement reacting to the 10 minutes the Senate spent in Special Session on June 21:

“The Governor has called the General Assembly to Springfield for the purpose of acting on a balanced budget, and yet, on the first day back, the Senate spent a measly 10 minutes in Special Session. Within that 10 minutes, there was no debate or no action taken on anything regarding the budget. That is an insult and a shame. It’s time to get serious. The people of Illinois deserve better, and they definitely deserve more than 10 minutes of our time when they are paying us to be here.”
