The thoughts of House Speaker Michael Madigan following the latest House session -- which resulted in a one-month budget getting passed -- sound awfully familiar. Madigan says he knows Governor Bruce Rauner won't sign the one-month plan, and that the House will stay in session all summer until everyone plays nice.

"What we need is for people to be reasonable, to work in moderation, not in the extreme, and not be advancing non-budget issues which are in the extreme," says Madigan. That was Madigan's answer for a number of questions reporters threw at him. But he does say he had a meeting Thursday morning with Rauner. "I had a frank discussion with the Governor, and I gave him what I consider to be good, solid advice," Madigan said. "I'm not going to share it with you. It was a private conversation." Madigan does say it was more of a general conversation, not necessarily just about the budget or Rauner's Turnaround Agenda. But, Madigan says he felt good leaving the meeting.
