Rep. Schmidt Releases Statement Following State of the State and Budget Address

Today, the Governor delivered his State of the State and Budget Address. Following the largest budget proposal in state history, Rep. Schmidt released the following statement:

“Instead of looking out for our own citizens, the Governor is focusing on funding for migrants. The most vulnerable citizens of Illinois are paying the price for his careless overspending. We need a budget that’s fair, responsible, and puts Illinoisans first for a stable future. If we continue to operate on unrealistic budgets that aren’t addressing the needs of our own citizens, Illinoisans will hurt for it. I will do everything in my power to fight for a budget that will serve the people of our great state.”

Rep. Schmidt proudly serves the people of the 115th District.
