Rep. McDermed Encouraged by Frankness and Priorities in Governor Rauner’s First State of the State Address

“Today we heard the first truly frank assessment of our state finances from a Governor in more than a
decade,  and that’s exactly what we need to begin working on solutions this spring,” said State Representative Margo McDermed (R-Mokena).

“Governor Rauner has set the right priorities: creating good jobs, providing families with property tax relief and prioritizing education spending. I’m looking forward to hearing more detail in his budget address in two weeks.”
