Tell the Illinois General Assembly, Senate, and Governor Pritzker that 'Enough is Enough!'
Illinois is experiencing a severe
fiscal crisis caused by years of fiscal mismanagement. The numbers are
astounding: Illinois has a $6-$8 billion unpaid bill deficit, $3.2 billion
structural deficit, and $133.5 billion in unfunded pension deficit. Even
after the past two years with a budget and an increased flat income tax rate,
we are still nowhere near out of the woods.
Illinois has a long way to go until
its finances are restored, service providers are paid, vulnerable citizens
receive needed services, municipalities are supported, higher education funding
is not threatened and the impact of the state’s debt burden is not a worry for
Enough is Enough! Illinois
politicians must make fixing Illinois’ finances their number one
priority. Urge your legislator to pass a balanced budget for fiscal year
2020, and to give Illinois voters the opportunity to vote for a Fair Tax.
