SPRINGFIELD, Ill. ā€“ Speaker Michael J. Madigan issued the following statement Tuesday:

ā€œIā€™m disappointed that Leader Durkin has chosen not to attend our leaders meeting for the second day in a row. Democrats are committed to working with Republicans to find common ground on the remaining non-budget issues that have long been prioritized by the other side of the aisle, but we can only do so if Republicans are willing to negotiate with us. It is my hope that Leader Durkin will return to the table to discuss the issues that he and Governor Rauner have insisted be considered alongside the state budget.ā€
