Senator Forby State of State ReactionIllinois state senator Gary Forby (D-Benton) released the following statement in response to Governor Bruce Rauner’s State of the State address on Wednesday:

“The governor talks about the need for jobs in Southern Illinois,” said Forby. “I wonder if he realizes what he’s done to our region. He shut down the Sparta shooting complex, he cut off funding to Southern Illinois University and John A. Logan College. Those decisions cost people jobs. I hope he realizes he’s made a mistake and is going to work to undo his decisions and finally invest in Southern Illinois.”
