Anderson Reacts to Budget Address
State Sen. Neil Anderson (Rock Island) offered the following reaction to Gov. Bruce Rauner’s Budget Address Feb. 15.
“Without a doubt, the state budget is the biggest issue Illinois faces today. I’m glad that Gov. Rauner demonstrated today that he continues to be a champion for properly funding education and for job creation. I know these are issues that are important to my constituents,” said Anderson. “Now is the time for bipartisan compromise. Recently, we have seen momentum in the Senate toward a bipartisan budget framework. It is my hope that in the coming weeks we can build on that framework, and find real, bipartisan solutions to our fiscal problems to get Illinois back on track.
