001clayborneSPRINGFIELD, IL – Governor Pat Quinn introduced his budget to legislators today at his annual budget address. Senator James Clayborne (D-Belleville) weighed in on the proposed budget.

“The governor’s plan to cut nearly $400 million from K-12 education will be devastating,” Clayborne said. “Now more than ever we need to invest in our children’s education; instead, the governor is siphoning funds away from of our schools and not increasing the corrections budget.”
