ALLEGIANCE RESIZEEVANSTON — July 7 marks the end of a full week during which our state has had no budget. I am saddened and deeply concerned for everyone who relies in their daily lives on the state functioning properly, and I'm committed to finding a solution as quickly as possible.

I've laid out my remarks in an op-ed you can read here, and I also appeared yesterday on Chicago Tonight. My words are strong but rooted in conviction and, frankly, frustration.

It is irresponsible to create crisis after crisis — during which many of the most vulnerable citizens will be harmed — simply to make political points. Nobody in public office was elected to do that, and all of us should demand more of ourselves.

I hope to have updates soon, and I hope you'll share your thoughts with me as well.
