Statement from Senate President John Cullerton:

cullerton-052811br0401-061611-75x75"The state’s construction program should continue uninterrupted. The Senate intends to return to the Capitol on Wednesday to fully fund the construction program for the full 12-month period.

There are still major structural deficiencies in the House budget that will become clear in the months ahead. I look forward to having the opportunity to address issues such as the underfunding of education and social service commitments."

The Senate is scheduled to return to regular session at noon on Wednesday, June 22.
