SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, D-Peoria, lead budget negotiator for the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement Wednesday regarding Gov. JB Pritzker’s budget address:

“House Democrats are focused on developing a responsible and compassionate budget that uplifts our most vulnerable, invests in our future, and reflects the concerns facing families across Illinois.“In recent years, we have taken significant steps forward to stabilize and strengthen Illinois’ finances – restoring Illinois to A-level credit, eliminating debt, and better positioning the state to handle future challenges. We’ve done all this while also investing in our schools, and caring for residents from children to the elderly. This budget will be another opportunity to continue this positive momentum, while further supporting job creation and economic development.“Today is the first step in a longer process as we work toward crafting a final document. We look forward to reviewing Governor Pritzker’s priorities in detail and engaging stakeholders in the conversations ahead.”
