SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) issued the statement below after Gov. Bruce Rauner called the Illinois legislature back to Springfield for special session on June 21.

“I’m willing to negotiate a balanced budget with the governor any time or any place. The Senate spent six months this spring negotiating a balanced budget to provide much-needed stability for our state.

“The budget plan we put together includes $3 billion in cuts and many of the reforms he initially proposed. It’s disappointing that during those negotiations he was traveling the state on a campaign tour.

“Hopefully now the governor will begin to take his job seriously and join us to negotiate a balanced budget that protects colleges and universities, services for the most vulnerable citizens of our society and provides stability for small businesses and our entire state.
