Rep. Brauer Hopes for Productive 2014

Cooperation and teamwork in the Illinois General Assembly when they reconvene later this month? One area lawmaker says that is what his party is hoping for.

Brauer says crafting a bi-partisan budget should be the general assembly’s top priority. Lawmakers return later this month.
