Rep. Wilhour Responds to Gov.’s Budget Proposal

Rep. Blaine Wilhour believes we have to hold the Governor and the majority party accountable for bad budgeting practices. He will continue to fight for a responsible, transparent budget that reflects the priorities of our citizens. Governor Pritzker’s proposed budget this year includes:

πŸ’° A $2.29 billion increase from last year’s enacted budget

πŸ’° A $775 million shortfall for FY25 based on existing revenue and the Governor’s spending plan

πŸ’° Better healthcare benefits for non-citizens than most taxpayers receive

πŸ’° $1 billion in new taxes and other budget gimmicks
