Governor Pritzker’s Budget

A few more details about the new budget proposal Gov. Pritzker unveiled Wednesday:

💰 A $2.29 billion increase from last year’s enacted budget

💰 A $775 million shortfall for FY25 based on existing revenue and the Governor’s spending plan

💰 Better healthcare benefits for non-citizens than most taxpayers receive

💰 More than $1 billion in new taxes and other budget gimmicks

House Republicans support a balanced budget without tax hikes and will continue to fight for responsible state spending which prioritizes taxpayers and our most vulnerable citizens.
