ILLINOIS (WCIA) -- One lawmaker hopes to force others back to work.
Senator Sam McCann (R) filed a resolution to hold a continuous session until a budget is reached. It would require the General Assembly to be in session a minimum of 10-hours per day, Monday through Saturday.
Some argue it's not necessary for lawmakers to attend unless there's a budget to vote on. McCann says, under this proposal, no lawmaker would get a paycheck or mileage reimbursement.
Senate President Cullerton (D) sent out a memo this week reminding taxpayers they passed a budget with the same spending level the governor introduced.
He emphasized it's now time for the governor and House to finish the job.
