Balanced Budget

According to the Illinois Policy Institute, the 2018 budget is already staring at a $1.7 billion hole for the year, meaning the streak of unbalanced budgets in Illinois will continue.

Illinois hasn’t had a truly balanced budget since 2001, and the latest numbers from the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget, or GOMB, reveal it may not have one through 2023. I will push for sound budgets that are free of political pet project earmarks and turn us toward the black for the first time in 16 years. These earmarks have added to the corruption in Springfield, placing undue burden on the backs of our children and grandchildren.
