The Illinois House and Senate will reconvene in Springfield today. The unusual June session comes as majority Democrats and Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner continue to clash.
Rauner and House Speaker Michael Madigan say they’ve had “cordial” conversations. But their public statements have a different tone.
“The middle class is suffering under the politics of Speaker Madigan and President Cullerton," Rauner said.
Madigan says he thinks it’s an “example of functioning in the extreme.”
“It doesn’t help the process," Madigan said.
