Senator Rezin releases statement after Governor Rauner’s Budget Address

“Governor Rauner’s Budget Address today was a cold dose of reality. Our budget crisis is what happens when you have one party rule for more than a decade. It’s no surprise the budget decisions that will have to be made to get our state back on its fiscal track are difficult. The solutions to our fiscal problems are deep, so fixing them requires bold reforms, very tough decisions, and the courage to make it happen. Pain will be felt, but the opportunities that lie ahead for us from these tough decisions will be rewarding. States around us have faced fiscal problems. They made the tough decisions, and now they are reaping the benefits. I believe Illinois can do the same, but it will take time, and it will take everyone coming together to make it happen. Illinois doesn’t have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. I look forward to working with Governor Rauner and all legislators in restoring fiscal sanity to our state and making Illinois great again.”
