Wheeler: Property Tax Relief & Criminal Justice Reform Key Parts of Governor’s Address

Friday, February 17th, 2017

State Representative Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) responds to Governor’s budget address:

“I was glad the Governor used his address to provide feedback on the proposal being worked on in the Senate. He made it clear that previous attempts to balance the budget by raising taxes didn’t work and we need to cut spending, provide property tax relief and make Illinois a competitive place for job creators. As with his State of the State, he emphasized criminal justice reform is an important component of his budget recommendations, I completely agree. If we reduce recidivism and get more people working and contributing to the state, it will not only reduce costs to the state, but provide the positive economic impact the state desperately needs.”
