Comptroller Munger Welcomes Comprehensive Approach to Budget

Posted by Admin On February - 19 - 2015

Comptroller looks forward to honest discussion

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Illinois Comptroller Leslie Geissler Munger released the following statement Wednesday in response to Gov. Bruce Rauner’s Budget address:“Today Governor Rauner offered a much-needed comprehensive approach to our state’s budget and fiscal challenges. For the last decade state government has consistently spent more than it took in, borrowed money that it didn’t have and ‘balanced’ the budget with accounting tricks. Today the consequences of those actions are coming due.

“I appreciate that the Governor delivered his budget proposal to the General Assembly without delay, providing the maximum amount of time for much debate before moving forward with the best financial plan for our state and its taxpayers.

“While there will be plenty of disagreement in the weeks and months ahead, it is abundantly clear that Illinois must change the way it does business and I am heartened to see a thorough approach to our fiscal issues. The Governor’s proposal provides a solid starting point for discussion.”
