Democrats Approve Unbalanced Budget

Spending Exceeds Revenue by $4 Billion

Springfield… Illinois House Democrats introduced and passed components of their $36 billion dollar FY16 budget proposal today. State Representative Tom Demmer (R-Dixon) released the following statement in response…

“Instead of working in a bipartisan manner to compose a negotiated budget, Springfield legislative leadership crafted a spending proposal without an ounce of input from anyone but themselves. Their budget is not balanced and spends $4 billion more than we’ll bring in. This is not right, and the people of Illinois know it.”
