John Egofske Statement on FY24 State Budget

State Representative John Egofske issued the following statement today on the FY24 Illinois state budget:

“The basic rule of budgeting is that you cannot spend more than you take in. Unfortunately, this budget breaks that rule, spending more taxpayer dollars than what was brought in. While I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues across the aisle to craft a budget that puts fiscal responsibility and transparency first, we need to remember that these are taxpayer dollars that we’re spending, and they need to be spent as efficiently and responsibly as possible.”
