Governor Says he’s Showing ‘Compromise,’ Democrats Skeptical

Chicago (AP) – Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration says it’s taking steps in three areas to “compromise” while the Republican remains deadlocked with legislative Democrats over a budget. Rauner’s office announced Monday it reached an agreement with labor and business on proposed unemployment insurance changes. The administration also said it would ease restrictions on who qualifies for state-subsidized child care and drop plans to limit which elderly and disabled Illinoisans get state-funded help. Some Democrats and care advocates were skeptical of the “compromise” characterization.
