Rep. McDermed Responds to Governor’s Budget Address

“The Governor’s message today was clear: our state finances are in crisis, and we will need to work together now on the difficult decisions needed to turn it around,” said State Representative Margo McDermed (R-Mokena).

“It’s clear Governor Rauner recognizes that like our families, our state must live within its means, and he has given us an honest assessment and a starting point for negotiation. As I review the details in the coming weeks, I am looking forward to discussing them with my constituents and getting their input. I’m optimistic that this spring we will finally begin to get Illinois back on track.”
