Stephens Responds to Governor’s FY24 Budget Address: “U-Turn before We Hit the Edge of the Fiscal Cliff”

SPRINGFIELD – In response to Governor Pritzker’s State of the State and Fiscal Year 2024 Budget Address on Wednesday, House Assistant Minority Leader Brad Stephens (R-Rosemont) released the following response:

“We are approaching the edge of a fiscal cliff in our state that will collapse when one-time federal funds and extra revenue from inflation dry up. Illinoisans deserve a government that spends their hard-earned money responsibly, one that makes a U-Turn before we reach the edge of this cliff. What also wasn’t mentioned in this budget address was real property tax relief, and I look forward to continue working across the aisle to provide this for the working class people of the 20th District.”
