“The budget that Governor Pritzker just delivered isn’t a budget for a nearly junk-rated state. It’s not a budget for a state that’s losing more people than every other place except New York. It’s not a budget for where home values are some of the lowest in the nation and not rising here like they are everywhere else. It’s not a budget for a state that has some of the highest taxes, and definitely the second highest property taxes in the nation.”

“It’s déjà vu all over again. An unbalanced budget. No reforms. More spending. And of course, more tax hikes.”
