Gov Rauner takes Oath of Office

Members of the House Republican caucus welcome Governor Bruce Rauner to Springfield and look forward to working together to make Illinois great again.

Getting down to business, Gov Rauner said he plans to make Illinois competitive again and will initiate a comprehensive jobs and economic package that will get Illinois working again.

According to Rauner, "... Illinois is not as competitive as we need to be and cannot be as compassionate as we want to be." He plans to fix the "busted budgets and broken government."
