Harris Explodes Over Budget Impasse

In a lengthy and impassioned floor speech, Rep. David Harris expressed his frustration, irritation and concern over the prolonged impasse on passing a current Fiscal Year budget for the State of Illinois. The new Fiscal Year started on July 1st and because of various continuing appropriations and court orders, State expenditures are on track to exceed State revenue by as much as $5 billion or more if there is no budget in place. And the situation gets worse each day that passes without a budget.
