SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Plainfield) released the following statement in response to the Illinois Senate’s passage of a state budget for Fiscal Year 2021:

“As expected, the budget priorities for our state were altered due to the worldwide pandemic. I am glad funding for our schools were held flat and local governments will continue to receive funding through these difficult times. In addition, we focused on funding for our families, unemployment needs, businesses impacted by COVID-19 and local public safety.

“This budget was cut by nearly $1 billion from the governor’s initial proposal and does not include legislators’ pay increases. It does include full pension payments and ensures our needed construction projects continue.

“I recognize our budget will take advantage of much needed federal support, as all states’ budgets will,  but the Senate worked hard, in a bipartisan manner, to address our state’s greatest concerns and direct dollars accordingly.”
