State Senator calling on Rauner to sign bill to save money during special session
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Democratic State Senator Melinda Bush is calling on Governor Rauner to sign a bill to save money on special session.
The House Bill would stop mileage reimbursement and per diem rates from going up.
In a statement Bush says in part “The governor’s special sessions are needlessly expensive, costing taxpayers upwards of $48,000 each day. If the governor doesn’t sign this bill, the special sessions he’s demanding become even more expensive.”
The bill was sent to the governor’s desk in June.
