Martinez Grand Bargain Photo March 1SPRINGFIELD — After the Senate Republicans did not continue voting on grand bargain budget proposals tonight, Majority Caucus Whip Iris Y. Martinez (D-Chicago) issued the following statement:

“Senate President John Cullerton and Senate Democrats have worked tirelessly to compromise and come up with a budget agreement for the people of Illinois. But we can’t do it alone. The governor and Senate Republicans have failed to do their jobs. The fact that the Senate Republicans didn’t have the courage to vote tonight on grand bargain budget bills is cowardly and shows that they’re not serious about getting us out of our budget impasse. Shame on Governor Rauner and the members of his party he controls for failing to rise to the occasion and do what’s right for Illinois.”
