House Majority Leader Greg Harris said Thursday lawmakers are looking at using state revenue, rather than the money the state will receive from the American Rescue Plan, to repay money it borrowed last year.
In a rare joint statement, Gov. JB Pritzker, Senate President Don Harmon (D-Oak Park), House Speaker Chris Welch (D-Hillside) and Comptroller Susana Mendoza on Thursday announced a plan to pay off the money the state borrowed from the federal government last year without relying on funds from the American Rescue Plan.
