Statement: Jesiel Pleased By Rauner’s Move to Restore Funding for Most Vulnerable

"I was pleased to hear that thanks to revised estimates from the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability Gov. Rauner has acted quickly to restore funding for our most vulnerable. His swift action not only demonstrates his focus on providing for those most in need, but also means that those who couldn’t handle another loss of support can sleep a little easier. I am also hopeful his actions will help lead to more amicable budget negotiations and allow for passage of a budget without needing to extend session and cost taxpayers more in the process."
