House Rules

Story by WBGZ Radio
Bipartisanship seems to be the buzz word after the House voted on house rules.  Republicans, like State Rep. Ed Sullivan(R-Mundelein) spoke out against the bill and the lack of bipartisanship. “Let’s see who wants to stand up and say enough is enough. Let’s have a new day. Let’s have bipartisanship. Lets work together to get things going,” Sullivan said.

State Rep. Mike Bost (R-Harrisburg) became very heated and yelled at his fellow representatives when he felt unheard. Similar to what he did last year during a House meeting, which can be seen on YouTube.
State Rep. Barbara Flynn Currie (D-Chicago) had a different side to tell.
“In 1995 and 1996 Democrats did not have get a fair share of their opportunities to have their bills heard. Only 9% of the bills that came out of committees were sponsored by democrats. That has not been true in the times during which this party has had controlled the chair, the speaker ship of the Illinois House,” Currie said.
