"While his budget may appear balanced, it is clear that this budget will hurt working class communities that have struggled under his failed leadership.” - State Senator James F. Clayborne, Jr. (D-Belleville)

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner gave his fourth budget address at the Capitol today. The budget, which the governor claims to be balanced, relies on shifting pension costs and gutting health insurance for state employees.

State Senator James F. Clayborne, Jr. (D-Belleville) released the following statement:

“The governor’s plan saddles local schools with the choice of raising property taxes or firing teachers due to a lack of resources. This, coupled with the governor’s aim for a property tax freeze, will suffocate local schools and could force drastic cuts. While his budget may appear balanced, it is clear that this budget will hurt working class communities that have struggled under his failed leadership.”
