Illinois Working Together Statement on Gov. JB Pritzker's Budget Address
Illinois Working Together Executive Director Jake Lewis released the following statement in response to Gov. JB Pritzker's Budget Address:
"Gov. JB Pritzker's address today makes clear the hard choices facing Illinois as it begins to heal after four devastating years under Bruce Rauner. It will not be easy, but we commend the governor for taking a bold stand in tackling the challenges facing the state. We especially applaud Gov. Pritzker for recognizing that key to our future prosperity are a Fair Tax that asks the wealthiest to pay their fair share and a Capital Bill that invests in high quality infrastructure to keep our citizens safe.
"We welcome Gov. Pritzker's commitment to move Illinois forward with high-road solutions that promote economic justice for all."
