SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Camille Y. Lilly, D-Chicago, issued the following statement Wednesday after Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s annual budget address:

“The need for equitable access to affordable health care services has always been an important issue but the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the significance of this issue. While there are many areas of concern for the state’s budget, I will stand ready to work with the governor to create a balanced budget that will benefit underserved communities, black and brown communities and our working families.”

“Although we are in trying times, we must support the hopes and dreams of the members in our communities. Our neighborhoods have a rich culture; our children, young adults and families still need to feel attached to the places they call home. I will fight to give our residents the resources they need to support our local businesses and arts programs. I stand prepared to advocate for the necessities essential to everyday life that citizens of our state need including health care, housing, food and job creation by working with community organizations in my district to assist individuals in navigating the challenges faced by our state, county, city, and country.”
