Representative Jeanne Ives Reacts to Madigan’s FY16 Budget Bills that are $4 Billion out of Balance

Today House Democrats began bringing budget bills and amendments to the House floor for discussion and votes. In response to the Democrats’ decision to push forward a FY16 budget plan that is close to $4 billion out of balance, State Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) has issued the following statement:

“I find it incredibly irresponsible that the House Democrats have brought forward a FY16 budget they know is unbalanced. They are promoting their spending plan and they have offered absolutely no information as to how they will fund it.”

“The majority party has a history of wreckless spending with no regard for how it impacts the citizens whose taxes fund our government. They have not earned the right to even one more cent of the public’s money.”

“At a time when we should be discussing fundamental reforms that will cut waste, fraud and abuse from our government and maximize efficiencies in how we do business, the House Democrats have instead presented a FY16 budget that shows once again that they have no interest in reining in their spending or seeking any reforms.”
