OTTAWA – State Rep. Lance Yednock gave his reactions to Gov. J.B Pritzker’s budget address, Wednesday. Rep. Yednock says digging our state out of the financial mess left by former governors will take tough decisions and work from both parties to find solutions that put middle-class families first. In his budget address to the general assembly, Gov. Pritzker laid out options to fix the state’s budget deficit including rejecting imposing additional income, retirement and sales taxes on the middle class and instead enact a fair income tax. Pritzker says it would lift some of the tax burden off of middle income earners and instead ask the wealthiest to pay a little more.
Prizker addressed a built-in multi-billion-dollar deficit of funding for schools and universities and human services that most families rely upon and asks to put an end to hallowing out vital government services.
