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

CHICAGO –“On the day our great nation celebrates its independence, Governor Rauner continues to deny the State of Illinois freedom from a budget crisis that has our state on the verge of becoming America’s first state with a junk credit rating. I am hopeful the House will follow the Senate’s lead and override the Governor’s veto, acting on behalf of our families, our students and our most vulnerable constituents in order to move the state of Illinois forward for a better future.”
