Cross: Democrats jammed through a $2B spending bill

House Republican Leader Tom Cross (R-Oswego) speaks against House Bill 190 ($2 billion in new spending) on the House floor. Leader Cross released the following statement immediately following the passage of the bill by the House Dems.


“Democrats jammed through a $2 billion spending bill today at a time when our focus must be on forcing the state to live within its means, prioritizing the limited resources we have available to spend, and reforming our government. While the bill includes some items that have merit, Democrats unfortunately bogged it down with millions in unnecessary and irresponsible spending. Today’s action is just another example of how the Democrat majority in Springfield has spent us into the fiscal mess we are trying to clean up.”
