Reis Reacts to News on Democrats' Passage of Unbalanced Budget Items
Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Springfield....On Tuesday, State Rep. David Reis, R-Willow Hill, criticized Democrats on a House budget panel for voting "yes" on the Illinois Department of Corrections budget and then leaving without hearing any of the Republican questions.
“This is 7 or 8 percent of the budget … So many of the things that we do are mandatorily or constitutionally required and yet we had members get up and walk out. They don’t have a clue about this budget. And that should just put this whole process this year in perspective. Vote how the Speaker says and move on,” Reis said.
