Following Governor Pritzker’s State of the State Address, Representative Tim Ozinga (R-Mokena) released the following statement:
“After months of record-high inflation, I was hopeful that Governor Pritzker’s budget would relieve struggling Illinois residents. Unfortunately, this budget proposal does the opposite and will require another tax increase to cover the ever-growing cost of new programs.
“Year after year, we see the same empty promises have led to businesses and citizens fleeing the state of Illinois in droves. This out-of-control budget will only make it harder for the people of Illinois to get by. It’s time for the Governor to hold himself accountable for his hostile anti-business and anti-taxpayer policies and to make a change to help our state.”
