Rauner calls on lawmakers to support his agenda, pass budget

( KTRS ) Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner is calling on majority Democrats to support his legislative agenda or “immediately” pass their own balanced budget.

In a memo to legislators Thursday, the Republican notes Illinois is about to enter a fourth month without a budget for the first time.

Rauner says his initiatives – including letting local governments opt out of collective bargaining with public-worker unions – would save taxpayers $5 billion.

Rikeesha Phelon, spokeswoman for Senate President John Cullerton, says Rauner’s “demands” have “zero impact” on the state budget and will hurt the middle class.
