Morrison Responds to Pritzker’s Budget Preview

SPRINGFIELD…Today Governor JB Pritzker gave his annual budget address to a joint assembly of the House and Senate.  State Representative Tom Morrison (R-Palatine) released the following statement in response:

“No doubt, the Governor and the legislature have a tough job ahead–creating a budget that’s balanced at the same time the state still grapples with billions of dollars of unpaid bills and mandated spending. Instead of giving us a plan that makes the state more attractive to taxpayers, the Governor and his team proposed a budget that once again relies on greater taxation and borrowing. He’s trying to sell another round of tax increases but neglecting the very reforms that would allow our state and local governments to manage their budgets more efficiently and effectively with current revenues.”
