SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Silvana Tabares, D-Chicago, released the following statement in response to Gov. Rauner’s State of the State Address:

“Yet again, Governor Rauner fell back on his tired talking points at his annual address. For three years now, the governor has denied responsibility, and blamed everyone else but himself for his crises. His inability to work across aisle has pushed Illinois into an unprecedented fiscal crisis which prevents taxpayers dollars from being invested on improving our schools, expanding access to health care, and creating good paying jobs.”

“The governor has a choice this year. If he chooses to continue down his path of destruction, the General Assembly must do what it did last year and work cooperatively among itself to pass a balanced budget that invests in our communities and provides real tax relief for working families and seniors.”
