Plano Mayor Bob Hausler was in Springfield recently, advocating for Plano.
He was there on lobby day for the Illinois Municipal League and the International Council of Shopping Centers, which he serves on its government relations board.
Hausler attended meetings with Governor Bruce Rauner, Illinois House Republican Leader Jim Durkin, and Senate Majority Leader Tom Cullerton.
In reference to the on-going budget stalemate, Hausler had to this say.
Regarding the proposed Illinois income tax raise, Hausler said this.
Pensions have been a concern for many area residents. Mayor Hausler provides this insight.
Currently the state of Illinois is not behind on payments to Plano, but Hausler knows the effects on area school districts.
State leader Durkin has promised Hausler a trip to Plano soon for a tour to discuss local concerns.
