FY15 Budget

The Illinois House introduced a plan to rectify the $1.6 billion budget hole that has impacted subsidized child care programs, prisons, court reporters, the mentally ill and the developmentally disabled. This legislation was filed on Monday, and was presented and debated in the House of Representatives today. Representative Andersson released the following statement concerning the recent budget proposal:

“The FY15 solution requires a bi-partisan effort between the legislature and the Governor to make the tough decisions necessary to fund essential services and balance our budget. The plan that was presented to us today serves to protect several essential programs in our State, ones that serve subsidized child care programs, prisons, court reporters, the mentally ill, the developmentally disabled, LGDF and OSLAD funds. These areas are necessary to the success of our State and will continue to exist because of the current plan presented. This plan will help solve the emergency situation we are currently in regarding the state finances, and is necessary to provide future flexibility for the State moving forward. ”
