Budget protests in Macomb may become weekly event

Budget protests in Macomb may become weekly event

People across Illinois are now showing their distaste for a budget impasse that continues to affect their services and funding.

Protesters gathered in Macomb outside of the office of State Representative Norine Hammond Monday afternoon.

A local grassroots organization called Indivisible of West Central Illinois says they will begin weekly protests until a budget can be agreed on.

The organization says a stopgap budget would provide a necessary bridge until a budget can be approved.

The organization feels a budget must fully fund education and social services or Macomb and Illinois will never be able to grow.
