Assistant Minority Leader Haas Responds to Budget Address & 2023 State of the State

SPRINGFIELD – In response to Governor Pritzker’s State of the State and Fiscal Year 2024 Budget Address, House Assistant Minority Leader Jackie Haas (R-Kankakee) released the following statement:

“Illinois families are fighting uphill battles on many fronts and this budget proposal does nothing to address it. When our residents see in their household budgets that they’re spending more than they’re making, they cut costs and make sacrifices. Lawmakers could learn a thing or two from our constituents, and that should show in this budget proposal. Increased funding pressures will drive deficit spending, increasing taxes and not addressing our dreadful fiscal climate.”
