Statement from Sen. Barickman on the State of the State address

Sen. Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) issued the following statement after Governor Bruce Rauner delivered his 2018 State of the State address:

“I think the Governor offered a good look at some of the recent high points for state government, including the passage of a bipartisan school funding overhaul that will help deliver funding to where it is needed most. But he also made it clear that many of the biggest challenges facing our state remain. I agree that we must continue to fight to break the broken status quo that has paralyzed our state for far too long.”

“A new regular session is now underway. I look forward to working with my colleagues again to find common ground on the issues before us. We’ve seen what is possible when we work together toward a shared goal of doing what is best for the people of this state. We have to keep the momentum going.”
