Democrats Prioritize Banning Kangaroos, Quickly Leave Town

After a legislative session day was abruptly canceled in the House of Representatives during a deadline week for legislation to pass out of committees, House Minority Leader Tony McCombie released the following statement:

Leader McCombie-

“Republicans showed up with good bills for consideration. Bans on kangaroos and exotic cats made the cut while Republican bills to reduce taxes, hold criminals accountable, and strengthen families were blocked by Democrats. The priorities of this chamber are upside down and it’s immoral to leave early while so much work remains.”

Rep. Rosenthal-

“We continue to have important state issues to address, but Democrats are avoiding the real concerns while banning coyote contests. Our state needs to focus on legislation that improves the quality of life for Illinois residents and public safety.”
