More responses coming in Friday about Governor Rauner's signing of HB 40. This from the Illinois Federation of Republican Women:
After yesterday's disappointing news that Governor Bruce Rauner signed HB 40, Susan Wynn Bence, president of the Illinois Federation of Republican Women, released the following statement:
"As the president of the largest Republican women's organization in the state of Illinois, it is disappointing that Governor Bruce Rauner signed HB 40 without heeding the guidance of our organization and its members. An organization that values life. Not only is this bill contentious by all accounts, but the fiscal ramifications of the bill are still unknown. The focus should be on guiding Illinois to a solid fiscal footing; instead, democrats continue to push divisive policies that endanger our state and its fiscal viability."
