holmes 060619SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Linda Holmes released the following statement after Gov. JB Pritzker put his signature on the bipartisan, balanced state budget and fair tax rates plan approved by the General Assembly:

“Illinois is on a new path to budget discipline and stability. This budget continues our progress in restoring our schools and higher education institutions, our human service programs, our public safety agencies and economic and community development efforts. It provides grants for young people to attend college, offers potential property tax relief to homeowners, and includes pro-business tax reforms and incentives for job creation.”

“I support the fair tax constitutional amendment proposal primarily because it gives voters the choice on whether to change our system or not. Every year, I sponsor legislation that takes decision-making from boards or state commissions and puts them in the hands of local municipalities, school boards and voters. I believe Illinoisans deserve the chance at the ballot box to consider a modern, fair tax system.”
