Durkin Statement on Governor’s Budget Address

Illinois House Republican Leader Jim Durkin released the following statement after Governor Pritzker’s budget address. 

“The governor’s budget address is always a wish-list, and this year it’s clear that the governor wishes to be reelected. The budget laid out by Governor Pritzker today is packed with gimmicks and one-time tricks, but no structural reforms. The people of Illinois deserve a governor who will be honest and work to actually fix things like property taxes and out-of-control crime.”
