Speaker Welch’s Statement Regarding Fitch Ratings Upgrade

“This improved outlook is yet another example of what our state is capable of with strong leadership and responsible economic policy decisions. All three rating agencies have upgraded Illinois’ outlook which is proof we can support families, invest in underserved communities, and be fiscally prudent at the same time. I am incredibly grateful to our House Budgeteer Greg Harris for all of his hard work, as well as the bipartisan budget working groups, for making the fiscal health of our state a top priority. “
