Thank you to everyone who came out to my Town Hall meeting in Plano to discuss to the state's
 
budget.
SPRINGFIELD– State Representative David A. Welter (R-Morris) held town hall meetings in Seneca on June 15 and Plano on June 21 in advance of the 10-day special session of the Illinois House of Representatives which begins today. At the town halls, local residents expressed their desire to have the state pass a balanced budget without tax increases and to provide property tax relief.

Representative Welter also announced today that he will decline his salary and per diem during the 10-day special session. Per diems alone will cost taxpayers an additional $24,237 per-day for the House of Representatives and State Senate to be in special session during the final 10 days of June.

“I appreciate everyone who took time out of their evening to attend one of my recent town hall meetings,” Representative Welter said. “I heard the voices and concerns of local residents loud and clear. They want us to pass a balanced budget and prove that the state will be responsible stewards of their hard-earned tax dollars. They also want us to enact meaningful property tax relief so that working families and seniors on fixed incomes can afford to stay in their homes.”
MORRIS– State Representative David A. Welter (R-Morris) has announced that his upcoming town hall meetings scheduled in Morris and Wilmington have been postponed following today’s proclamation from Governor Rauner calling the Illinois General Assembly back to Springfield for a 10-day special session starting on June 21 with the goal of passing a balanced state budget.

“I am glad the Governor is calling us back to Springfield next week to work toward passing a balanced state budget,” Representative Welter said. “We are rapidly approaching a tipping point as a state beyond which the damage may be irreparable – unless we come together at this critical juncture to pass a balanced budget. I am eager to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to achieve this goal together.”

Representative Welter’s previously scheduled Town Hall Meetings at White Oak School in Morris on Wednesday, June 21 and at Wilmington Middle School in Wilmington on Thursday, June 22 have been postponed until further notice. Welter’s Town Hall Meetings in Seneca on June 15 and Plano on June 19 will continue as scheduled.

“I look forward to communicating directly with local residents and listening to their feedback at our town hall meetings in Seneca and Plano before next week’s special session; and keeping constituents from throughout the district informed of progress while I am in Springfield during the last ten days of June.”

MORRIS– State Representative David A. Welter (R-Morris) is calling on Governor Bruce Rauner and House Speaker Michael Madigan to bring legislators back to Springfield for an immediate special session to pass a balanced state budget:
 
“Every day when I meet with constituents and listen to feedback from our community, I hear the same request – enough with all the politics. Get back to Springfield and pass a budget,” Rep. Welter said. “I have been ready and willing since the day I took office last summer to do exactly that. The Governor and the Speaker should call a special session so that we can pass a balanced budget before the end of June. Without a balanced budget, we will find ourselves right back in this same position in the very near future, with the state making commitments it cannot afford; putting our schools and social service providers in further jeopardy. I want to be a part of the solution in Springfield, which means coming together and passing a balanced budget now.”
 
“Illinois families and taxpayers are rightfully tired of all the excuses,” Rep. Welter added. “Democrat, Republican or independent, we all share the same stake in the future of our kids and our community. We need to do right by them and pass a balanced budget.”
 
Both the Governor and the Speaker of the House have the ability to call the Illinois House of Representatives back into special session at any time. Illinois has been operating without a comprehensive state budget since July 1, 2015.
