Statement on the budget address

Senator Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) released the following statement after Illinois Governor JB Pritzker delivered his 2020 budget address:

“There’s a lot that I agreed with him on, and there were certainly some worthy priorities in this budget, but the Democrats just passed one of the biggest income tax hikes in state history in 2017, and it’s still not enough. They want more money in tax increases to cover their $1.6 billion in new spending. At the end of the day, I am concerned that it seems like it’s never enough for them.”
