Dems Reject Republican Efforts to Stay in Springfield and Avoid Month Long Recess

Before adjourning for a month, Republican State Rep. Tom Demmer motioned to bring back session tomorrow so that legislators can continue to work and solve the budget impasse. House rules require this to be voted on. The speaker ruled the motion “out of order” even though it wasn’t. The Republicans wanted to stay and work. The Democrats broke the rules and chose to leave.
