State Rep. Sosnowski diplomatically “disappointed” in Rauner’s actions



11498547_BG1ROCKFORD, IL - Representative Joe Sosnowski made the following statement in response to Governor Bruce Rauner’s announcement about HB40, “For years, the Governor campaigned as a candidate who would "shake up Springfield" by focusing on the financial disaster that this state had become… and still is.  He said that we would leave the social issues alone and focus on what needs to be done to fix this state economically and grow jobs to make Illinois a better place to live and work.” 

Rep. Sosnowski further commented, “Most tragically HB 40 will increase abortions. We try so hard to value and preserve life at all stages, yet this bill makes it easier to dismiss the innocent unborn who are our future…and it will cost the state more money. The Governor promised to veto HB 40 in the public, in the press, and in private. I am extremely disappointed in the Governor's actions in supporting this bill, in deceiving so many about his goals as Governor, and in his outright lie about this bill.”
