Union protesters disrupt Rauner stop in Belleville.

Belleville, IL ( KTRS ) – Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner received a mixed reception during a southern Illinois stop meant to build public support for his legislative agenda.

Union protesters jeered the first-term Republican at a Belleville farm market. It was the second of two Rauner rallies Monday afternoon before the Illinois General Assembly returns to Springfield on Tuesday to continue their overtime effort to pass a budget for the fiscal year that begins next month.

Rauner reiterated his call for legislators to endorse several pro-business reforms he called critical for the state’s future before he will consider a spending plan approved by legislative leaders before their May 31 adjournment.

The budget plan includes a revenue gap of at least $3 billion, which Democrats want to plug with tax increases.
