State Senator Bill Brady (R-Bloominton) joined House and Senate colleagues today to listen in as Governor Bruce Rauner delivered his first budget address. According to Brady, two weeks ago the Governor laid out a bold agenda, and today he provided the road map.
“Today Governor Rauner took the first step in what could be a long budget process. He laid out a budget that decreases spending from last year while still increasing funding for education, preserving funding for vital services, and protecting our most vulnerable citizens. It also provides for hiring more Department of Corrections officers improving public safety and paves the way for property tax relief,” said Brady. “Without a doubt, tough decisions still lay ahead this spring and we will have to roll up our sleeves to make the right decisions for the people of Illinois.”
