Sen. Rezin reacts to the passage of a supplemental budget

State Senator Sue Rezin (R-Morris) released the following statement in response to the Senate passing a supplemental spending bill, Senate Bill 1720, which contains a pay increase for Illinois legislators and gives the Governor $400 million for a so-called “business closing fund” with little oversight:

“This supplemental spending bill is appallingly irresponsible. Not only does this bill give legislators a $12,000 salary increase after they already voted to increase their salaries this spring, but it also gives the Governor nearly half a billion dollars to use with little oversight on how he chooses to use it.

“Far too many people in our state are struggling to keep up with the staggering increase of the cost of living for us to be giving ourselves a raise and the Governor hundreds of millions of dollars for his pet projects.”
