Ives Responds to Governor Rauner's Budget Address

Following Governor Bruce Rauner's Budget Address on February 18, State Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) issued the following statement:

"With the release of his 2016 budget priorities and proposed list of spending cuts that are both pragmatic and compassionate, Governor Rauner is demonstrating the type of bold leadership that won him the support of Illinoisans during his campaign. After over a decade of bad fiscal policy and practices, our Governor is stating loud and clear that it is time to re-establish fundamental principles; that it is time to apply common sense to our spending, and implement reforms to strengthen our educational system, our communities, and our economic vitality. These proposals are a good first step towards moving our state towards opportunity and prosperity."
