Statement From the Office of Governor Quinn on Budget Agreement

SPRINGFIELD – November 28, 2011. The Office of Governor Quinn today issued a statement after reaching an agreement on the Fiscal Year 2012 budget with legislative leaders.

“After working closely with the General Assembly this veto session, we have reached a bipartisan budget agreement that achieves the goal of keeping the seven state facilities slated for closure open throughout this fiscal year using existing state resources.”

“Reallocation will allow us to move towards the Administration’s long-term goal of more thoughtful, properly supported and successful community care transitions. We thank Senate President John Cullerton, Senate Leader Christine Radogno, House Speaker Michael Madigan, House Leader Tom Cross, and their staff members for their bipartisan cooperation and hard work.”
