IL Comptroller praises state override
Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza praised state senators for overriding Governor Bruce Rauner's budget veto.
She urged Illinois House Members to do the same.
This is absolutely necessary to stop the hemoraging that has been happening to taxpayers since we've had the Rauner regime in place over the last two years," said Mendoza.
This is the first full-year budget that has been passed by the legislator in three years.
It would end the longest stretch for any state to be without a budget since the Great Depression.
