SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) issued the following statement regarding Gov. Rauner’s Budget Address.
“Our local units of government use the Local Government Distributive funds to provide service for our community. The governor’s proposal mean cuts in services to our communities- less police and firemen on our streets, layoffs of employees working in service offices and raises in property taxes as our local mayors attempt to provide services to residents. This plan isn’t going to solve Illinois’ problems, it will only create more.”
