Barickman statement on Pritzker’s budget address

State Senator Jason Barickman released the following statement following Governor JB Pritzker’s budget address:

“Illinois’ financial situation has been critically wounded by years of reckless taxing, spending and borrowing. We should learn from past mistakes, not repeat them in the manner proposed by Gov. Pritzker. I encourage the Governor to moderate his approach so that Democrats and Republicans can come together to craft a more reasonable approach to a budget. We can do this by avoiding gimmicks, controlling spending and putting reforms in place that will allow our economy to grow. I believe this is our best chance to put our state on stronger financial footing.”
