SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Mary Edly-Allen, D-Libertyville, released the following statement following Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s Budget Address:

“After listening to Governor Pritzker’s address, it is clear that the path to put Illinois back on track will require tough choices and bipartisan solutions. Our state faces numerous challenges as we seek to move beyond the past four years of partisanship and gridlock that drove our state further into debt, blocked comprehensive reforms and wasted taxpayer dollars.

“As we work to put our state back on track, I look forward to working with Republicans and Democrats to find solutions to the issues we all care about: property tax relief; economic growth and job creation; and protecting funding for critical programs and services, including lifesaving breast cancer screenings, domestic violence shelters and our children’s education. Together, we can build a better, brighter future for Illinois.”
