State Rep. Jack Franks, D-Woodstock, said nothing is more important than solving the budget crisis.
“Understand that we’re spending every week more than $200 million more than what we’re bringing in,” Franks said. “We’re digging a deeper hole every day. It’s more than $30 million every day.”
Franks said lawmakers should stay in Springfield until they agree on a budget.
“Nobody goes home, nothing else gets worked on, let’s fix the budget,” Franks said.
