Video: We need a truly balanced budget

Rep. Bill Mitchell and other House GOP members introduced a constitutional amendment today that would hold legislators responsible for passing a "truly" balanced budget. HJRCA32 requires the Auditor General's office to certify that expenses do not exceed revenues in budgets passed by the Illinois General Assembly. If the budget is not balanced, legislators will not be paid their salaries.

Support responsible spending by signing the petition to require a balanced budget.
