CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - State Rep. Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) and State Senator David Luechtefeld (R-Okawville) say in terms of state issues and the budget, it's been a process.
"When you're trying to work through issues and we do have a lot of issues here in Illinois, sometimes that's a lengthy process," Bryant said. "You know if it was easy to do it would've already been done. And so we're working through some difficult processes right now." "
That's the problem, what happens next," Luechtefeld said. "I think we're here for awhile because neither side seems to want to bend. I would say September maybe, and that's a long time."
Bryant said the House will be back in session next Tuesday at noon.
She said she believes the Senate doesn't go in for another two weeks, and hopes there will be a resolution to the budget problem when the Senate is back in session.
