Black Caucus hopes State of the State addresses ending the budget impasse

ilbclogogreenblacksmallforbannerSpringfield – The State of the State address is an opportunity for the governor to tout his record of accomplishments, but this year will be far from usual as the state enters its unprecedented eighth month without a budget. Members of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus are eager to hear how the governor intends to end this budget stalemate as thousands of seniors, college students and the most vulnerable in our state have gone underserved. Additionally, the state is months behind on unpaid bills, which has forced numerous businesses to close their doors, reduce services and lay off workers.

Below is a list of statements from ILBC members on what they expect to see in the upcoming State of the State address:
