March to Springfield Leaders Block Doors to Gov. Rauner's Office

Protesters Block Doors to Gov. Rauner's Office (WICS)

More than two dozen people gathered at the Statehouse Tuesday blocking the doors to Governor Bruce Rauner's office.

We're told they are protesting the lack of a state budget and the negative impact it is having on the state, elderly, disabled and children.

Protesters say they are holding all lawmakers responsible, including Gov. Rauner, House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton.

March to Springfield leaders sent us the following statement about Tuesday's incident at the statehouse:

March to Springfield Leaders Risk Arrest to Disrupt Business as Usual at Gov. Rauner’s Office
Twenty-Seven (27) March to Springfield leaders are risking arrest by blocking access to Gov. Bruce Rauner’s office on the second floor of the capitol building. Activists are demanding Gov. Rauner stop sacrificing the lives and wellbeing of the people of Illinois in order to protect tax loopholes for corporations and his wealthy campaign donors.
