The Illinois Constitution requires a balanced budget. The House is required to write that budget every year. Any member of the House who votes yes on an unbalanced budget should immediately be impeached and removed from office. Any House member who does not vote yes on a balanced budget every year should either produce a balanced budget themselves or immediately be impeached and removed from office.
Obey the law you were elected to enforce or go home.
