Senator Barickman statement on special session

Springfield –State Sen. Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) released the following statement after Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner ordered a special session of the Illinois General Assembly:

“I applaud Governor Rauner for ordering a special session. Republicans have made major concessions in our recent budget and reform plan, and I believe a good bipartisan compromise is even closer than it was when Democrats walked away from negotiations in May. I look forward to continuing to work with our colleagues to pass a balanced budget, create a more equitable funding system for all Illinois schools, and improve our abysmal jobs climate.”
