Steve Stadelman, D-Loves Park, to call for a balanced approach to the state’s budget challenges at a press conference Wednesday at 1 p.m. at the Milestone Elmwood Heights pavilion, located at 2660 Elmwood Road in Rockford, Ill. Gov. Bruce Rauner’s proposed budget eliminates and reduces many essential services that provide job training, enhance educational opportunities and ensure medical care for those in need.
