Weigh-in on the Governor's budget plan


When Governor Bruce Rauner delivered his budget address to the Illinois legislature he made it clear he wanted to work across party lines to enact a balanced budget that is "responsible and compassionate." He stated the budget must include reforms that will grow the economy and benefit taxpayers. He offered two directions that would lead to a balanced budget and urged the legislature to choose: Work together to enact cost saving reforms, grow the jobs market and enhance state revenues or drastically reduce spending to bring it in line with revenue.
