111015CM1561ResizeSPRINGFIELD—Senator Terry Link (D-Vernon Hills) had the following response to the governor’s State of the State address.

“Now that the governor has been on the second floor for a year maybe we can get away from the rhetoric and move to real solutions for our state. Our communities and families are hurting and this governor desires more rhetoric. It is time that we move along and see real progress for all Illinoisans,” said Senator Link.

 

“With social-services being demolished and many universities on the brink of disaster, I urge the governor to come to the table with a sensible plan to put Illinois back on the path to stability. I look forward to working with Governor Rauner and my fellow senators to restoring necessary services our constituents depend on.”

Link120715SPRINGFIELD – Millions of dollars could soon offer much-needed relief to local officials as they prepare for winter, said State Sen. Terry Link.

Legislation that would free up gas tax money for Lake County communities was approved in the Illinois Senate today. State transportation officials haven’t provided exact numbers on how much these communities are owed, but last year, Waukegan, for example, received more than $2 million in gas tax money. Across Lake County, the total was $23.6 million.

“This measure frees up money that belongs to local communities,” said Link, a Waukegan Democrat who represents much of the northern suburbs. “It makes no sense for it to sit in Springfield while local officials worry about affording winter services their communities need.”
