Illinois state Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth gathered local human service providers and state contractors together Wed. in a plea to the governor and lawmakers to pass a sustainable budget.
The Peoria Democrat says it should be the focus of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner’s upcoming State of the State address.
“The state of the state is we need a budget, and we need a budget now,” Gordon-Booth said.
The rally cry comes exactly a week ahead of the governor's annual speech.
