ELGIN, Ill. – State Rep. Anna Moeller, D-Elgin, issued the following statement following Gov. JB Pritzker’s budget address:

“The governor’s budget address serves as a reminder that the state, like most Illinois families, face many tough challenges and decisions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor’s budget proposal is the first step in a process that requires us to work together to craft a budget that prioritizes our values while also living within our means. Our budget must invest in and support our communities, our schools, and rebuild essential and lifesaving human services that so many people depend on.”

“The governor’s speech made it abundantly clear that Illinois, like so many other states, needs immediate federal assistance. Our state, local governments and communities have been hit with many new and unexpected expenses as a result of the pandemic but the Trump administration failed to provide the necessary relief we so desperately needed.”

“As we set out to craft a budget that is fair, responsible and balanced, I urge Congress to move quickly to pass a robust relief package that includes the support states, local governments and communities need to recover.”
