Leader Durkin Statement on Budget Address

State Rep. Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) today released the following statement on Governor Pritzker’s Budget Address:

“The Governor’s  budget today shows the true need for bipartisan solutions to fix Illinois’ many fiscal challenges. We cannot tax, borrow and spend our way out of this deficit as the governor has proposed. Illinois families deserve a focus on reform, including our out-of-control pension costs and sky high property taxes, and not a penny more in new taxes or fees. My caucus is prepared to work with the Governor on crafting a balanced budget that reflects our priorities and moves Illinois forward.”
