Sen. Barickman statement on Budget/State of the State Address

State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) released the following statement after the Governor’s Budget and State of the State Address: 

“The people of Illinois deserve long-term solutions that reduce crime, provide tax relief and result in our government spending within its means. However, Governor Pritzker’s budget pairs temporary tax relief with permanent spending increases, while relying heavily on one-time federal COVID revenues. Middle-class families deserve permanent tax relief, not election year gimmicks that fail to address Illinois’ crushing property tax burden and rampant inflation.”
