SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Camille Lilly, D-Chicago, issued the following statement Wednesday after Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s annual State of the State and Budget Address:
“As we embark on the budget drafting process, my focus is on making sure that human service providers and organizations that help our most vulnerable have a seat at the table and have access to health care.
“Despite the pandemic, these providers continue to thanklessly step up every day and help people. It’s critical that we have their back in Springfield and ensure they have the resources they need to succeed at their mission.
“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to serve as chair of the House Appropriations–Health and Human Services Committee, where already we have begun the process of engaging stakeholders to better understand their needs.
“Today was the first step in putting together a responsible budget, but a lot of work remains. I look forward to reviewing the governor’s proposal in detail and beginning conversations with colleagues on both sides of the aisle.”
