“Sadly, the governor made no mention of vital programs– seniors’ and veterans’ services, drug prevention programs to address our ever-growing heroin epidemic and funds to repair roads and bridges. I urge him to consider communities’ needs and put forward a responsible budget to fund important services for the people of Illinois.”
