Illinois House Speaker Michael J. Madigan released the following statement Friday on the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy:

“House Democrats agree that action must be taken to protect the health and wellbeing of our military heroes in the Quincy Veterans Home, and we stand ready to work with the governor. Concerns and questions raised by our caucus remain unaddressed by the administration, but need to be resolved in order for us all to make the best decisions on behalf of our veterans and their families.

We know all too well that we are in this situation entirely because for three years Governor Rauner failed to act, attempted to shift blame, and hid the truth even from our veterans, their loved ones and their caregivers. We must now work together to correct these failings and protect our veterans through the careful, considerate process that should have been this administration’s policy all along.”
