David Friess Statement on FY24 State Budget

State Representative David Friess issued the following statement today on the FY24 Illinois state budget:

Illinois families are still grappling with high inflation. Groceries, utilities, gas, and other living expenses have all gone up. That isn’t stopping Illinois Democrats from working to lock Illinois taxpayers into long-term spending commitments for new programs and pet projects. Not only that, but they’ve done it all at the last minute, choosing to unveil the budget after their own self-imposed deadline. These stalling tactics need to end so that Illinois can have a fair, sustainable, and responsible budget once again.”
