Springfield, IL…Representative John Egofske (R-Lemont) issued the following statement in response to Gov. JB Pritzker’s State of the State and Budget Address:
“Yesterday’s budget address gave us a lot to be hopeful about, but there are also definitely some areas of concern,” said Egofske. “The Governor’s Budget offers a 7.9% increase in spending, but, with an expected 2.8% decrease in state revenue. Understanding that this spending rate is unsustainable, we look forward to working with the Governor to improve on these proposals. Illinois has unlimited potential, and I’m excited to find common-sense solutions that positively impact Illinoisans and their families.”
