Springfield, IL…Representative Travis Weaver (R-Edwards) issued the following statement in response to Gov. JB Pritzker’s State of the State and Budget Address:
“Illinois is, and has been, on an unsustainable financial path, and the Governor’s State of the State and Budget Address today only highlighted why we’re in such a dire situation,” said Weaver. “We all want to help Illinoisans, their families, and the most vulnerable, but we can’t do that through unfunded programs and mandates, especially at a time when state revenues are expected to decrease by over $1 billion. Republicans are here to work, and we want to ensure we’re operating within our means, just like individuals and families have to do every single day across our state.”
