State Senator Pat McGuire issued the following statement today as the Illinois Senate approved a bipartisan budget compromise that included an increase in funding for state colleges and universities:

“The Illinois Senate today adopted a Fiscal Year 2019 state budget which is balanced. It was achieved by bipartisan cooperation. And it was accomplished without bitterness,” McGuire said. “The serious challenges which still face Illinois are more likely to be solved now that a bridge has been built between Democrats and Republicans.”
