Dillard responds to budget delay
LOMBARD, Ill. – Republican candidate for Governor Kirk Dillard today issued the following statement in response to Senate President Cullerton’s remarks about the state budget.
“Governor Quinn has the legal responsibility, as Governor, to submit a budget on time. He’s been Governor for five years.
“There’s no excuse.
“More important, his delay cuts in half the time that the public has to scrutinize his spending plan.
“This was pure politics.
“He delayed his budget until after the Primary to see who his Republican opponent will be.
“When I’m Governor, I will submit my budget to the legislature, and it will be balanced and on time.”
