Springfield…Governor Bruce Rauner began his third budget address since taking office by quoting President Abraham Lincoln, said State Representative Brad Halbrook (R-Shelbyville).
“The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion… We must think anew and act anew. We must think anew and act anew,” quoted Gov. Rauner of Illinois’ own Abraham Lincoln.
“I agree with workers comp and pension reforms, and common-sense changes in regulations that the governor outlined in his speech today,” commented Rep. Halbrook, who serves on the Government Consolidation & Modernization Committee. “I continue to be ready to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to move our state forward and grow more jobs,” concluded Halbrook.
