SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – The Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus released the following statement following Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s budget address:
“Under the reckless leadership of Bruce Rauner, services that lift up immigrants and Latino working families were cut year after year. Today’s remarks by the governor are a good step in the right direction as we work together to fix the harm caused by the previous administration.
“Latino working families across Illinois are struggling. While there is much work to be done, it is encouraging that education, health care, and public safety are at the front of the governor’s budget. Getting Illinois back on track will not be easy, but we look forward to working with Governor Pritzker to invest in our state’s Latino community by ensuring the funding of these critical services.”
