“The Governor’s proposed budget represents a starting point for further negotiations. We heard a lot in his speech about more spending, more tax increases and concepts tried in the past. And while we as legislators now begin digging into the details, I have grave concerns about the pension plan and I remain opposed to a graduated income tax. The people of Illinois are demanding their elected officials address the fiscal crisis facing our state. If we are going to put Illinois on a path forward; then we need to learn from history, not repeat it.”

with less regulation and lower taxes. We must leave a legacy of
responsible government that will last for generations.
