SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Diane Blair-Sherlock, D-Villa Park, issued the following statement Wednesday after Gov. J.B. Pritzker gave his annual budget address:

“With this year’s budget, we have an opportunity to draft a plan that further invests in our classrooms, comprehensively reinforces public safety, expands health care access and creates opportunities for residents of all ages. We should continue to build on the progress made toward early childhood education with Smart Start, and must prioritize services that support people with disabilities and reproductive freedoms. Our approach needs to be people focused, and to continue our ongoing effort to strengthen the state’s fiscal standing. Responsible budgets in recent years have secured needed credit rating upgrades – saving critical tax dollars – and have better positioned us to meet challenges facing working families. It’s critical we continue to move forward in a smart way, and I look forward to reviewing the governor’s priorities in detail.”
