SPRINGFIELD — State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) issued the following statement in response to the 'Grand Bargain' vote taken today:
“We have gone through this exercise for nearly five months now,” said Bertino-Tarrant. “We need to be focusing on budget related items. Schools need to open in August, students need to be able to return to college and social service agencies need their funding to provide services for thousands of people.”
Senator Bertino-Tarrant continues to work towards finding a way towards a fiscally responsible budget that equitably funds every child’s education.
