Sullivan leaves Senate with pride, a few regrets

As John Sullivan left the Illinois Senate last Tuesday he couldn't help but wish he could have helped end the state's bitter 19-month budget battle. "My biggest regret is that we haven't come up with a budget solution before now," he said. After 14 years in office, Sullivan won't be a part of the budget solution. His term in office ended Tuesday, just a day after his 58th birthday.
