Sen. Tom Bennett statement on budget address

SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Tom Bennett (R-Gibson City) released the following statement regarding Governor JB Pritzker’s budget address:

“Once again, the Governor proposed a state budget that does not match the priorities of the people of Illinois.

“He continues to prove that his priorities are misplaced. He is planning to increase taxes by more than a billion dollars to pay for the migrant crisis he created.

“This means people may end up paying more money for the same things, get paid less money for the same work, or both. Illinois taxpayers deserve an open and transparent process that prioritizes spending where it is needed most and shows discipline with their money.

“My focus will remain on the citizens of this state.”
