McCombie condemns Madigan’s unwillingness to reach budget resolution (Rock Island Today)
Republican candidate Tony McCombie, running for a House seat in District 71 of Rock Island, sharply derided Speaker Mike Madigan’s recent session suspension, stating that his constituents are “suffering” from the lack of Illinois’ budget resolution.
“Yesterday, Speaker Madigan cancelled another scheduled House session,” McCombie said via her Facebook page. “These sessions are an opportunity for lawmakers to sit down and bring together a balanced budget. The number-one concern among voters I’ve talked to over the last couple of weeks is the lack of a state budget.”
