Treasurer Summers Statement on House Override of Governor Rauner’s Budget Veto

CHICAGO – “I want to thank Democratic and Republican legislators in the House and Senate for putting politics aside and providing the necessary leadership—something Governor Rauner failed to do—to pass a state budget for the first time in three years. This budget means we can get back to the business of providing support to our residents and universities while creating a foundation upon which to build back our credibility as a state.”
