FY24 State Budget Signed into Law

Today Governor JB Pritzker signed into law the Fiscal Year 2024 state budget.  In response, House Minority Leader Tony McCombie issued the following statement:

“Today Governor JB Pritzker signed one of the largest spending plans in our state’s history. An unbalanced budget that shortchanges many, but particularly our hospitals and direct support persons (DSP workers) who serve our most vulnerable citizens. Another budget filled with broken promises, accounting gimmicks, and a lack of structural reforms to address the systemic outmigration of Illinois families. House Republicans voted no in order to stand up for the residents of the 102 counties we represent. This budget puts the state’s fiscal outcome at risk and all but guarantees future tax hikes.”
