Join Wirepoints on Monday, April 6, 2020 at 12 p.m. CST for an online event hosted by Americans For Prosperity Illinois.
Ted Dabrowski will take participants through the negative impacts of the Coronavirus on Illinois’ people, the economy and government finances.
Illinois’ budget deficit is projected to grow by billions, the state’s unpaid bills have risen above $7.5 billion again, and the market crash will likely drive the state’s pension shortfalls above $300 billion. All of those will bring Illinois’ finances to the brink.
The silver lining? This crisis will bring clarity to the fact that only structural solutions can fix Illinois’ problems; that a pension amendment is the only way to reduce the massive retirement debts that are strangling Illinois households; that rolling back collective bargaining laws is essential to cutting the state’s unaffordable property taxes; and that consolidation of Illinois’ overlapping and duplicative 7,000 units of government is key to eliminating corruption and bloat.
