Gov. Rauner announced plans during the week to host a meeting with the four legislative caucus leaders on Nov. 18 in an effort to end the budget impasse. Republicans are calling for a balanced budget and pro-jobs reforms to turn Illinois’ unfriendly business climate and fiscal climate around. These reforms include workers’ compensation reform and term limits for elected officials. State Sen. Bill Brady(R-Bloomington) is urging Democratic leaders to consider pro-growth measures such as worker's compensation reform and term limits for elected officials along with passing a balanced and responsible budget.
The Governor said an agenda for the Nov. 18 meeting will be circulated prior to the meeting.
