SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — State Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez, D-Cicero, will continue to fight for fair funding for critical services as a member of a key budget forecasting panel,

“We need to make sure lifesaving services like healthcare and senior care are always fully funded, and we must continue to make smart investments in education, job training, and infrastructure to build a stronger future. That will be my goal as a member of the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability,” Hernandez said. “As we come together to craft this year’s budget, it is essential that we use accurate information to make informed decisions and continue to build budgets that are both fiscally and socially responsible.”

Hernandez was appointed to join The Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability, a nonpartisan legislative agency that provides research on state economic data. The fiscal oversight they provide is crucial to legislators as they craft the budget and fund critical programs.

“I am grateful to Speaker Welch for this appointment and the opportunity to help get Illinois’ fiscal house back in order,” Hernandez said. “We have a long way to go, but I am confident that with continued effort and support from the Commission and my fellow legislators, we can build a more fiscally sound state for future generations to enjoy.”
