Harmon budget react

OAK PARK – Senate President Don Harmon (D-Oak Park) released the following statement after Gov. JB Pritzker unveiled his annual budget proposal:

“I’m not accustomed to good news in a budget speech.

This is a budget proposal unlike any I’ve seen in my time in the Senate.

It speaks to the work we’ve done, together, to bring stability to our state finances.

That stability allows us to invest back in our state and provide relief to those hit hardest by the pandemic and associated economic downturn.

There’s a lot to like with this plan, and I look forward to working with the governor to produce a final product.”
