SPRINGFIELD – Assistant Majority Leader Tony Munoz (D-Chicago) reacted to Gov. JB Pritzker’s budget address Wednesday with the following statement:
“With the continuous effects from the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m looking forward to bringing our state back to where it needs to be. This year’s budget continues Illinois’ path toward stability by making the best of a difficult situation. It avoids tax hikes that working families can’t afford and minimizes painful cuts to programs that people rely on.
“Gov. Pritzker addressed the broadband programs that are important to the communities I represent. I will continue to fight for funding for public safety efforts and veterans’ affairs. It’s important that this budget still includes funding to open the Chicago Veterans’ Home.”
