Senator Righter releases statement on Governor Rauner’s State of the State speech
“Today, Governor Rauner outlined a plan that can transition Illinois from stagnation to progress. He focused on issues such as education reform, procurement reform, criminal justice reform, and improving our economy – all major issues that both parties and all citizens can agree must be improved.
“The status quo in Springfield must come to an end by moving Illinois forward, creating more opportunity for everyone, and bring more efficiency to Illinois government.
“The tone of Governor Rauner’s speech was a good one in that we can find common ground on a variety of issues. We must work together to solve Illinois’ problems and make our future one of prosperity.”
