Sen. Barickman statement on budget vote

Springfield – State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) released the following statement after Senate Democrats passed an unbalanced budget:

“It’s extremely disappointing that after all the progress we have made in negotiations, Democrats would simply ram through an unbalanced budget that doesn’t offer any fixes or reforms for the systemic issues that continue to plague Illinois. This budget does little to nothing to pay down the massive bill backlog nor will it stop the constant exodus of people and jobs from our state. We need bipartisan solutions, not more of the same failed ideas and policies that got us here.”
