GRAYSLAKE – State Representative Sam Yingling is calling on members of the General Assembly on both sides of the aisle to come together to override Governor Rauner’s veto of the Debt Transparency Act.

Since Bruce Rauner took office, the backlog of unpaid bills has ballooned to nearly $16 billion. The bi-partisan Debt Transparency Act requires Rauner’s administration to be transparent and accountable to taxpayers by disclosing the full extent of unpaid bills each month.

“Given the extreme damage Bruce Rauner has done to our state, it’s absurd for him to argue that his administration should not be forced to be transparent and accountable to the taxpayers,” said Yingling.  “The General Assembly must override Rauner’s veto to ensure the Governor’s agencies cannot keep additional unpaid bills secret through bookkeeping tricks.”

The General Assembly will have an opportunity to override the Governor’s veto during the upcoming veto session this fall.
