Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner has a familiar wish list for the legislative session that begins this week.
Rauner has several items that he’s been asking for since he first ran for office, but his top priority this year, he said, is the budget. He said it’s time to get it right.
“Let’s get a revenue estimate that we agree on, as the law calls for," he said, "and then do a balanced budget that lives within our means for a full year, not a partial -- and that calls for no new taxes.”
Then, Rauner said, he wants to start work on his next priority.
