sullivan-75x75SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Pat Quinn introduced his budget to legislators today at his annual budget address. Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) weighed in on the proposed budget.

"This is the first step in a long process of passing a budget here in Illinois. While I am extremely disappointed the governor's budget cut $400 million from our K-12 education, I am pleased to see additional funding for staff at our veterans homes," Sullivan said. "I'm pleased there are no additional facility closures, and I welcome this attempt to pay down our backlog of unpaid bills."
