Senator Rezin releases statement after Governor Rauner’s Budget speech

<p style=”margin-bottom: 0.0001pt;”>&ldquo;I am optimistic we can change the state&rsquo;s dire financial direction. One that focuses on looking out for taxpayers and respecting the dollars they send to Springfield. One that makes our future the priority. </p>
<p> </p>
<p style=”margin-bottom: 0.0001pt;”>&ldquo;That future begins with our students. For too long, the Chicago machine has passed unbalanced budgets and underfunded our schools, while giving hundreds of millions more to Chicago Public Schools. I agree with Governor Rauner in that we must increase funding for early childhood education and finally fully fund the state&rsquo;s General State Aid formula for K-12 education. In my short time in the Senate, fully funding our schools has been a priority of mine considering it has been seven years since we have done so. Our future depends on it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p style=”margin-bottom: 0.0001pt;”>&ldquo;I believe we can all work together&mdash;and in a bi-partisan fashion&mdash;to help our schools, pass balanced budgets, and move Illinois forward. Too many people, vital programs, and organizations are relying on this. Our citizens deserve to live in a state with a thriving economy and balanced budgets.&rdquo;</p>
