SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, issued the following statement Wednesday after Gov. J.B. Pritzker gave his annual budget address:

“As Chair of the Personnel and Pensions Committee, I would like to thank the Governor for his proposal to address the Pension situation in the State of Illinois. I appreciate the hard work of the members of the pension committee and look forward to continuing to work on pension policy that is respectful of the hard-working employees of the state of Illinois and fiscally responsible for the state budget.

“Our state has made good strides toward fiscal responsibility in recent years, and we must continue this momentum. Property taxes and pensions are two of my main priorities in Springfield, and I will ensure that the voices of residents on these topics are properly represented in budget discussions. In addition, it is critical that we focus on supporting our classrooms, invest in public safety and pursue a balanced approach that respects taxpayers. I’m particularly interested in seeing how we can strengthen health care access – especially for our Veterans and seniors. We have a lot of work ahead, and I look forward to reviewing the governor’s proposal in detail.”
